COVER STORY

A Passion for Service

Three alumni embark on different

paths to Peace Corps service

6

ON THE COVER: While on her Peace Corps assignment in Kosovo, Anna Wonnenberg ’12 partakes in

the ancient tradition of face-painting for Kosovar brides on their wedding day. The circles symbolize

the cycles of life, and the lines connecting them are paths in your life. Displaying this art form as a

bride on her wedding day is for good luck and to celebrate the special day.
