February 8, 2024

What do you do when you're a Product Design major at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD) and want to redesign an existing houseware product to meet the needs of the future? If you're Carl Sabroff '24, you design the Wobble planter and go on to win one of the top prizes at the International Housewares Association's (IHA) 31st annual Student Design Competition.

This year, IHA received a record-breaking 358 entries from 31 schools around the world and selected winning products based on their innova-tion, understanding of production and marketing principles and quality of entry materials. Sabroff was awarded third place and a cash prize.

"The research phase of any project is definitely one of my favorite parts of the design process because of the human interaction," says Sabroff. "Firsthand experience is invaluable in any project because you learn little things that nobody else knows [and] you can gain knowledge that you had no idea you needed for a project."

'Let's Learn!': Moffit Scholarship Fund Honors Professor, Supports Students
February 8, 2024

Over the past 35 years, the business and economics department at K has grown from one part-time business professor to a popular business major with several full-time faculty.

One constant over that time has been Professor Timothy Moffit '80. Moffit took on that part-time business professor role in 1989 as a one-year sabbatical replacement, and other than a couple short breaks in the first few years, he has been teaching students at K ever since.

As Moffit approaches retirement this spring, a group of alumni-both classmates and students of Moffit's-have established a scholarship in his honor. Given to students for the first time in the 2023-24 academic year, the Dr. Timothy Moffit '80 Endowed Scholarship in Business has already raised $175,000 from a small group of donors. The goal is to increase that total to at least $300,000, which will provide $15,000 to scholarship recipients majoring in economics and business every year, forever.

The honor speaks to Moffit's commitment…

Learning by Doing
February 8, 2024

Each year between the fall and spring semesters, enterprising students return to campus a little early to participate in Intersession, a weeklong course dedicated to an interesting subject not typically offered during the regular semester.

From animal conservation to the fandoms of Taylor Swift and Harry Styles, students have the opportunity during Intersession to deep dive into one topic that often takes them outside the classroom and out into the surrounding community to put what they're learning to the test. Besides being a fun, engaging way to earn course credit outside of major requirements, this hands-on approach to learning is an invaluable part of our students' liberal arts education, one that will resonate as they emerge as responsible leaders and global citizens. Here's a closer look at a few of our favorite courses from this year's Intersession.

Miloni Shah: From SCAD Bee to ace of animation
February 8, 2024

Miloni Shah's (M.A., animation, 2021) first foray into the realm of animation started during her undergraduate days in a design school, where the enchantment of making characters come alive gave rise to a new passion: character animation. The pursuit of mastering this art led her to SCAD, where Shah's creativity and skill reached new heights under the mentorship of acclaimed professor William Tessier.

"I had my eyes set on SCAD," Shah said. "And it was like stepping into an animation wonderland. I found a mentor, and they didn't just teach me; they helped me sculpt my journey into this fantastical world of animation."

In her words, animation is not just about frames and characters; it's a profound journey of self-discovery. Shah emphasizes the importance of enjoying life, embracing the process, and always having a mentor on speed dial - the secret sauce to creating animated magic while dodging burnout dragons.

"Hard work is great, but it's like a wild stallion - you must know…

Mercyhurst Alumnus Kirk Campbell Named Offensive Coordinator in Meteoric Rise at Michigan
February 8, 2024

It was a battle cry that defined the University of Michigan Wolverines as they ousted one team after another on their path to glory as the 2023 National College Football Champions: BET, or Beat Every Team, never lost its punch, or its momentum.

And there in the mix of that 15-0 mega-season was a Mercyhurst man: Kirk Campbell '08.

Campbell started at Michigan in 2022 as an offensive analyst before being promoted to quarterbacks coach in 2023. His work with J.J. McCarthy proved incredibly vital, with the starting quarterback going on to win Big Ten Quarterback of the Year honors and leading the Wolverines to their first national championship since 1997.

On Friday, Feb. 2, Campbell's meteoric rise at Michigan took another surge as new Head Coach Sherrone Moore named him offensive coordinator. "I've been preparing for this since 3rd grade," Campbell said from his home in Ann Arbor. "I have always wanted to coach at the highest level possible. And that's the University of Michigan.…

February 8, 2024

"Looking out my bedroom window my whole life, I saw the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building and all of those amazing skylines," said Grace (Cruz '20) Callirgos. "I never thought that one day, my office would overlook a farm, but it's gorgeous and I love it."

After growing up in Manhattan, today Grace serves as a guidance counselor at Solanco High School in rural Lancaster County. She graduated in 2020 with both a bachelor's degree and master's degree after completing LBC | Capital's 4+1 Professional School Counseling program and found herself looking at graduation amidst a global pandemic.

VIDEO: Engineering Students Design Laser Measurement Tool for Track and Field
February 8, 2024

After decades of relying on their trusty tape measure - it was time for an upgrade.

The University of St. Thomas track and field team recently went on a search for a new system to measure horizontal jumps. They found their solution in the minds of four senior engineering students.

The age-old system for measuring horizontal jumps - two people running out into a sand pit with a tape measure - was slow and inefficient. To speed things up, the team had an eye on something with a little more technological star power: lasers.

But an online search proved disappointing. Commercially available solutions are quite expensive and would not fully meet the team's space and mobility requirements.

Assistant track and field coach Preston Huddleston presented the dilemma to students in the School of Engineering's Senior Design Clinic. A former student-athlete on the track and field team, Huddleston '18 graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering and participated in the clinic…
