Spring 2014: The Work Issue
The current issue of Keene State Today has a focus on work – how we define it, how we find it, why it matters, how it’s changed, and what it has to do with the liberal arts, among other work-related topics. Here’s some additional content to supplement the print publication.

Alpha Pi Tau alumni from the late 1980s gathered to celebrate “Mo”vember, sharing lots of laughs during skits around a blazing campfire. Scott Belanger writes, “Funny how those old Greek life stories have remained perfectly etched in our minds but we’ve somehow forgotten the minor details of Prof. Leinster’s Western Civilization class. The group is looking to meet back up again in 2015 and the offer by John Hornyak to visit him in Key West looks extremely inviting.” From left to right; John “Yaks” Hornyak ’88, Mike “Corky” Flanagan ’89, Phil “Sal” Coco ’90, Tom “Cookie” Cook ’88, Jim Parsons ’91, Tom “Mac” MacDonald ’90, Jim “Tuna” Shauck, Paul “Bobby the Brain” Bransfield, Scott “Boy” Belanger.
