CLASS OF 2010 | 2019 | ISSUE 1

Greetings, Class of 2010! Just a few updates this time around from our friends worldwide.

Rachel Shopper is now pursuing a master’s in clinical mental health counseling at Western Carolina University.

David Baranger completed a PhD in neuroscience at Washington University in St. Louis, and is a postdoctoral scholar working in psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. He is engaged to Tayler Sheahan and will be married in March in Chicagoland. Miles Krieger is a groomsman.

Jessie Schiewe “gave birth to a website in September . . . called OK Whatever (, it’s an online publication dedicated to weird news and strange stories. Journalism shouldn’t be boring. Read weirder.”

Peter Hull is engaged to Alexandre Staples, and the couple has plans to marry next year! This summer they moved from Boston to Chicago, where Peter is an assistant professor in the University of Chicago’s economics department.

Elizabeth Plantan has had an eventful year: “My husband and I welcomed our first child—a daughter—in June and I finished my PhD in government at Cornell University in August. I am now a postdoctoral fellow at the Ash Center at Harvard Kennedy School from 2018-2020.” Elizabeth looks forward to our upcoming 10-year Reunion in 2020 (gasp!).

That’s all for this issue! Here’s hoping everyone is well and as always, feel free to pass along your life updates anytime. Thank you to everyone for contributing!
