After 20 Years, a Face-to-Face Thanks

Sheena Tracy ’04 is making a mark in a field that she never planned to enter.

Joining the family insurance business was not on the radar when Tracy returned to Connecticut after graduation. Instead, the former Finance major became an analyst.

Daniel Keohane '85: Finding the Write Path

The literary career of Daniel Keohane ’85 almost stopped before it started. At a reception during his senior year, the CIS major approached distinguished playwright Edward Albee (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) for advice on how to get started in letters.

“Don’t work in computers,” Albee told the startled Keohane. “Get a job in a warehouse. Save your brain for writing.”
