Alumni Notes: Late Fall 2022

  • Pierre-Alexandre Aguirre (CLAS ‘19) is currently a Master’s Student at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington D.C. He is a member of the Public Service Fellows Program at SAIS, which seeks to “develop the next generation of public servants dedicated to making a positive impact on their communities and the world at large.”
  • Steven Manicastri (Ph.D. ‘20) is teaching two classes at Rutgers University. One of the classes (which he is teaching through the Union Leadership Academy at the Rutgers Labor Center) is free and available entirely online: it concerns the portrayal of the working class in pop culture. The other class (on contemporary labor issues in the U.S. as viewed through Marxist analysis) is a one-credit course that helps struggling students remain enrolled full time at Rutgers. Additionally, Dr. Manicastri is the proud father of Athena Natlya, who was born to Steven and Roxanne on September 8, 2022.
  • Andrew Colabella (CLAS ‘13) recently graduated from Fairfield University’s MPA program on the fast track with honors. He is currently the District 4 representative on the Westport, Ct, Representative Town Meeting Board.
