2020 has been a year of pivoting to virtual formats, and that's exactly what Chestnut Hill College did this year for the 9th Annual Harry Potter Academic Conference. Conference co-founders, Dr. Karen Wendling and Dr. Patrick McCauley, along with the hundreds of conference attendees, moved to Zoom for the two-day virtual event, which featured a diverse group of speakers and Potter scholars from all over the world.

Christa Lynch

As a Chestnut Hill College student, Christa Lynch ’03 made extra money working at Bruno’s, the well-known eatery and hang-out right across the street from the College. A career in the restaurant business was not in her plans as an undergraduate sociology major. Her 3-year stint at Bruno’s was her first real experience working in kitchens and restaurants, but it wouldn’t be her last.
