NeW Fall Blog Update

September 15, 2009 | NeW Staff

I hope you’ve been enjoying the Fall Blog as much as I have. We are blessed with some incredibly talented writers.

A few updates…

Welcome to two Veteran Bloggers, Kathleen Bracken, former UVA NeW President, and Bridget Brophy, UVA NeW alum, who will be contributing this fall. Keep on the lookout for great posts from these ladies.

Kathleen is in her fourth and final year at the University of Virginia majoring in Systems and Information Engineering. Last year, she served as the President of NeW at UVA and has been an active member of the club since her first year. In addition to NeW, Kathleen races for the club ski team and volunteers her time as a catechist for second grade religious education at her church. She enjoys spending time with her family, playing sports, cooking and is looking forward to marrying her high school sweetheart next summer.

Bridget is a recent graduate of the University of Virginia, where she was involved with NeW. She is currently working for the Federalist Society in Washington DC and is part of the Koch Associates Program. Her current heroes include Leo Messi, Paula Deen, and Fyodor Dostoevsky.

Finally, we are excited to launch the Fall Online Book Club. Annemarie Dawson, sister of former book club writer Catherine, will be hosting the club and posting every Tuesday beginning next week. We are excited to be reading The Politically Incorrect Guide to Women, Sex, and Feminism by Carrie Lukas. Make sure to get your copies today by purchasing one through our link on the online book club (a portion of the proceeds support NeW!) to take part in our online discussion and debunk the myths of feminism today. Whether you are involved in a NeW chapter already or out of college, you won’t want to miss out on our discussion!
