Lorna '71 and Dan '69 Riley
Lorna Woodsum Riley '71 and Dan Riley '69 both came to UHart looking to get an education, expand their worldview, and of course, meet great friends. What they didn’t expect was finding their life partner. Their story isn’t just a love story—it is so much more. It is two people standing up for their beliefs, facing their fears, and continuing to grow in their communities—getting into some good trouble, as the saying goes.
At 93 years old, Gil Perlroth is still doing what he loves—writing musicals. Currently with three musicals in the works, he is as exhilarated, passionate, and creative as ever.
This was a magical moment that happened like a grassroots movement, and for an hour in West Hartford, the world stood still. And hand in hand, we defeated hate," says Robert Barker-Oswald '04 about student protests against hate.
The friends made at UHart are the friends that will stick with you for life. Susan Buchholz '78, Lynne Pernell '78, Coreen Sumple '78, Naomi Lerner Tussin '77, Patricia Rissmeyer '78, Jill Hoffknecht '78, Rosemary Harbeson '78, Lisa Wolf '78, and Dodie Hannigan '78 are proof of this.
