Nicole Maloy, W’95, is one of my colleagues in Alumni Relations. She is the Director of the Multicultural Outreach program. I thought I’d share a post about her simply because she is interesting!
Nicole not only works in Alumni Relations, she is a very active volunteer on Penn’s Association of Alumnae Board, members with whom I work closely. This post is not about Nicole’s role as an employee or as an alumna however, this is about Nicole’s personal creativity. For example and most recently, Nicole taught a few of her Alumni Relations colleagues how to knit. She is a patient teacher (for which we are most grateful) and now my ten-year old daughter wears a beautiful purple knit hat that I finished last month. Nicole has many talents — she’s a dancer, a singer, an athlete, and most certainly an artist, as confirmed by being chosen last week to exhibit her portrait drawing at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. This honor is what I wanted to share with you.
Here’s the story . . . Nicole once wrote a Penn Alumni Blog post about exploring art resources in Philadelphia (includes a photo of her at age 17 with several jean jackets that she painted for her high school classmates in the late ’80s and early ’90s). One resource that she had not yet taken advantage of is the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA), the first school of fine arts in the United States. Its origin dates from 1791, when Penn was still located at 4th & Arch Streets.
In fall 2013, Nicole took a weekly evening class called “Intermediate Portrait Drawing” through PAFA’s Continuing Education program. Students who had been enrolled in CE classes or workshops from spring 2013 through spring 2014 were invited to submit artwork for the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Continuing Education Programs Annual Juried Student Exhibition.
PAFA received nearly 180 submissions, and 80 were accepted. Among them is Nicole’s piece, a portrait in charcoal entitled “Waiting,” which was drawn from a live model in class. If you would like to see it, along with the other 79 drawings, paintings, and sculptures, the exhibition runs from February 28 – April 6 in Gallery 128, Hamilton Building, 128 North Broad Street, at PAFA.

On New Year’s Day, the Penn Women’s Basketball team beat the University of Miami 67-66. This was the first win against an ACC school for our team.
Nearly 50 local alumni and families were there to cheer on the Quakers, which includes our local Alyssa Baron, a Penn senior, and leader of her team.
The Baron family and other team parents brought the Penn crowd to nearly 100 fans! It was a great way to start the new year by cheering for the red and blue while enjoying the warm weather of our “Sunshine State”.
The crowd included current students, newly admitted Class of 2018 students, Penn parents, alumni, and members of the Old Guard.
The Penn Club of Miami proudly waved our flag and we cheered for our red and blue.

Below is a list of our successful March 2014 Family Programs. I’m sorry you missed them!
Keep an eye on the new Penn Alumni Families website, and don’t miss another opportunity to attend a Penn event with your family!
FAMILY NIGHT at the PALESTRA
On March 7, 2014, the Association of Alumnae and Alumni Relations held a successful event with the Penn Women’s Basketball team at the Palestra for the 3rd Annual Family Night at the Palestra!
FAMILY DAY at MASK and WIG
On March 22, 2014, Alumni Relations hosted its 4th Annual Family Day at Mask and Wig! Many alumni brought their kids to the Mask and Wig Clubhouse, 310 S. Quince Street, Philadelphia, for a fun-filled afternoon beginning with lunch, followed by an age-appropriate show. After the show, the kids joined the performers on stage for a kick-line and singing of the Red and Blue. Penn’s Mask and Wig is an all-male comedy troupe that has entertained Philadelphians and the Penn community since 1889 with its original revues. This year’s production, Wishful Sinking, was adapted to appeal to children ages 12 and under.
4O WINKS with the SPHINX and PENN ALUMNI
On Friday and Saturday, March 14 and 15, 2014, Penn alumni and their children spent an overnight adventure at Penn’s Museum for 40 Winks with the Sphinx and Penn Alumni. The night’s activities are geared to take intrepid explorers on a journey through time and across continents, with hands-on opportunities, through games and crafts, to explore ancient Egypt, the mummies and hieroglyphics, the ancient Greeks and Romans, the world of the ancient Maya, and more! Following a scavenger hunt and an evening expedition through the galleries by flashlight, explorers rolled out their sleeping bags to doze at the foot of the third largest granite Sphinx in the world. The program concluded with a light breakfast in the Museum Cafe at 8am.
Look for additional family programming throughout the year! If you live outside of the 8-county Philadelphia area and wish to be included on our e-mailing list for Penn Alumni Family Events, please send an email with your request to Kristina Clark at email@example.com.

See’s Candy is here! Each holiday season, the Association of Alumnae hosts an annual See’s Candy Fundraiser.
Fundraising profits help the Association of Alumnae to sponsor programs for women, such as the recent Colloquium in honor of the 100th Anniversary of the Association of Alumnae. The funds also help to sponsor several awards, including the Continuing Education Award for an outstanding woman who has returned to college, the Fathers’ Trophy for a woman athlete and the Robert J. Alig Award for a student leader. In addition, the Association funds the Rosemary D. Mazzatenta Scholars Awards for women students’ internships or research during the summer, and has funded the student computer kiosks in the renovated Fisher–Bennett Hall.
If you don’t want to miss out on this delicious fundraising effort next year, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be sure to add you to the list!

WOW! The final count of last night’s Class of 2013 Senior Women Wine & Cheese Reception indicates that we welcomed over 360 new alumnae!
As you may know, the event is a collaborative effort by the Association of Alumnae and the Trustees’ Council of Penn Women. Association of Alumnae board member Patrice Green, and Trustees’ Council of Penn Women’s vice president Dawn Eringis each took the opportunity to welcome the seniors to the ranks of alumnae, and their words to our senior women about transitioning from a Penn student to a Penn alumna were so incredibly relevant and inspiring!
It was a wonderful event, and we continue to celebrate Penn women!
