Feedback Wanted: Preliminary Renovation Schematic Designs are here!


As many of you may be aware, over the past few years there have been ongoing talks of a major renovation to the house. The house has not seen significant refurbishment in decades, and it's time to bring it up to date! 

Along the way, we want to provide an opportunity for our alumni to review and understand the scope of the renovations, and provide feedback before the detail design really begins. That opportunity is now! Below are links to the initial schematic designs for the renovations - these describe the work to be done at a high level, with some basic illustrations. Take a look, and if you have thoughts you'd like to share, either leave a comment below, or send an email to alumni_relations@astadke.org. We look forward to hearing from you!

Ben Kravit '08 Helps Take Take Down Criminal, Also Convinces Internet He Is Paul Rudd


As reported by Jezebel, Paul Rudd has excited the internet with his assistance in the takedown of an attacker yesterday at the Dallas Airport. But it turns out it wasn't Paul Rudd at all, it was our very own Ben Kravit '08!

Ben Kravit '08

Also Ben Kravit '08. Not Paul Rudd.
So it turns out that the appropriate hashtag of the day is actually #BenKravitSavesLives, rather than #PaulRuddSavesLives
