Alumna from Pakistan returns to campus for visit

Alumna Shaista Abdullah (biology, Class of 1993 and 1997) got the chance last week to visit TWU’s campus for the first time since she left the university a little more than 20 years ago. Shaista was impressed to see how much the campus had changed. She was pleased to be able to visit with her fellow alumna and friend Karen Orloff (occupational therapy, 1993), who she thought she would never have the chance to meet with again. Shaista also was able to reconnect with former TWU professor Fritz Schwalm, who she said played a very significant role in the success of international students such as herself.
