Alumna Profile: Jacquie Farrell Moen '88

 

Jacquie is the Vice President of Online Education for the Smithsonian. She takes what you experience inside the museums "beyond" the walls, overseeing the creation of online classes and web programs for national and international audiences.

 

"Visitation taught me to be curious about the world. From history classes to French language classes, I always knew I wanted to explore cultures beyond the U.S.," she says.

Brooklyn Bridge Walk

A chilly April weekend didn't stop the NYC Alumnae Chapter from getting together to walk the Brooklyn Bridge in honor of fellow alumna Emily Warren Roebling (1860), known as the bridge's "surrogate chief engineer." See more.

 
 

Teddy Bear Tea

More than 80 alumnae and their children and grandchildren, as well as their stuffed animal friends, celebrated a sunny spring day with face painting, balloon animals and tea cookies and sandwiches on the Quad on April 14. See more photos.
