Influence of a University education

     In the last issue of The Messenger, two college presidents with a
University of Delaware background were featured: Jane O'Brien,
president of Hollins College, and Mary Patterson McPherson, president
of Bryn Mawr College. As part of a continuing series, five presidents
are featured in this issue. Whether they learned how to think
critically, act independently, resolve problems, communicate
effectively or simply listen, all credit their University years with
giving them the necessary tools to build careers in higher education.
Today, all five serve as college presidents , themselves passing on
the University's tradition of excellence in education. WILLIAM R.
