THE FACE OF
COLLABORATIVE EDUCATION

When West Chester University embarked on its most technologically advanced building to date, it was with collaboration in mind and making every interaction count. The new Sciences and Engineering Center and Commons building brings nursing, nutrition and health sciences students together with science and engineering students to create natural overlaps in their learning environment. In a recent example, the nursing department sent a malfunctioning IV pump to the biomedical engineering students for repair. Hands-on opportunities give students the skills employers are looking for and the language to communicate across disciplines. At WCU, students are forging meaningful connections through collaborative education.

THE FACE OF
MAIN LINE LUXURY REAL ESTATE

Villanova native Karen Strid and her team have a lot to celebrate right now. In 2021, they sold over $100 million in luxury Main Line real estate out of Berkshire Hathaway’s Rosemont office. Strid and her team rely heavily on the track record and market share of being affiliated with number one brokerage Berkshire Hathaway. Strid’s team is highly educated and super-connected, with roots in many private and public schools, country clubs, and charitable boards. Strid specializes in luxury listings on and around the Main Line, selling more land in Radnor Township’s Ardrossan than any other agent. In 2021, she has added three new agents to provide specialized service, so clients never have to wait to see a house.
