RAVENINGS C arolyn Wiley '19 and Elizabeth "Izzy" Jurgilewicz '20, both anthropolog y majors, spent six weeks this summer at Tokyo City University's (TCU) Yokohama campus, serving as English assistants at the university. Wiley learned of the opportunity through the continuation of an exchange program that began when TCU students visited Franklin Pierce last February in a class taught by Dr. Verna Delauer, assistant professor of environmental studies. "By traveling abroad, Franklin Pierce students experience other cultures, languages, and landscapes," said Delauer. "As a result, they attain knowledge and skills that help them succeed in the classroom and as graduates." Wiley lived one train stop from campus in a share house with students from around the world. She took the famously packed rush-hour train to get back and forth to campus. e internship was Wiley's first trip abroad, and she says the food was one of the best things about her experience. "In a broader sense, my favorite thing about Japan is that it was so huge and full of people," she says. "Everyone spoke a language foreign to us, and we were just along for the ride. It was exciting and a little intimidating, but we loved our stay in Japan." RAVENS ABROAD Two Students Intern in Japan J ohn T. Burke Jr. '66, Robert "Bob" Riley '82, and Terrell Boston Smith '05 are the newest members on the University's board of trustees, the governing body of the institution. "We're extremely pleased to have three Franklin Pierce alumni with such depth and breadth of talent and experience join the board of trustees," says board chairman Steve Camerino. "Bob, John and Terrell have all been closely involved with Franklin Pierce, its students and alumni over the years, and we look forward to their contributions." Burke, owner and founder of American Legal Investigative Services, received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Franklin Pierce in 1966, and later his Master of Science in criminal justice from Fitchburg State University. Prior to joining the board, he led the alumni association for one term, and served on the board of trustees from 1996–2000. He is also the recipient of the Alumni Participation Award, Power of the Raven Award, and the Dr. Frank S. DiPietro Founder's Award. Riley, a senior analyst at Care New England, graduated from Pierce in 1982 and received his MBA in global leadership from Johnson and Wales University. He married Kim (Lewis) Riley '83 and both have remained active alumni. Riley served as the alumni association's president before taking on the trustee role. Smith, a founding partner at the Tidemore Group, a management and public affairs firm, graduated from Pierce in 2005 and received his Master of Public Administration from Baruch College. He is also a managing partner of Marshall & Lafayette Real Estate Services, and before that, served in Maryland's Office of the Attorney General. Smith and his wife, Amy, live in Baltimore's Mount Vernon neighborhood with their daughter, Caroline.
