1995 human services alumna Nina (Harrell) Jett, who appeared on the Fall 1993 cover of One College Avenue, returned to campus in December for the graduation of her daughter, Yazmin Strauss, from the mass media communication major. (On left is Yazmin’s stepfather, Corey Jett.)

While Yazmin’s tenure as a Penn College student saw landmark construction projects connected with Stage X – the opening of Dauphin Hall residence hall and renovations across campus – Nina was a student when the Bush Campus Center opened in 1993. She is pictured standing in front of the newly opened Campus Center – on the lawn the Victorian House now occupies – on the magazine cover.

Back then, One College Avenue magazine was in just its second year. In 2012, we’re in Volume 21. We’ve come a long way!
