  • Basketballer Brown ’07 Scores Big Again

    Basketballer Brown ’07 Scores Big Again

    Austin Brown ’07 knows how it feels to score big.

    His 61-foot, buzzer-beating shot, which won the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference’s basketball championship, was ESPN’s “Play of the Day” back in February 2006.

    But neither that nor any of Brown’s many other accomplishments on or off the basketball court has come close to garnering the attention he has received in the past month since it became known that Zion Williamson, one of the most talked-about and sought-after NBA draft prospects since LeBron James, had signed to be represented by Brown, a sports agent with CAA Sports in Chicago.

    And it all started with a little sisterly advice.

  • Cindy Babington retires after 26 years

    Cindy Babington retires after 26 years

    After tackling a plethora of upper-level administrative positions at DePauw in a career that spanned 26 years, Cindy Babington retired.

    And after so many years, it’s easy to understand why she’s already missing the day-to-day interactions with staff and faculty with whom she worked alongside as coordinator of institutional research, dean of students, vice president for student life, vice president for admission and financial aid, chief of staff, vice president of enrollment management and, most recently, vice president for strategic initiatives.

    Alums Teach American Culture, Democracy in Ancestors’ Land

    When Joe Vosicky was little, “my dad’s idea of a bedtime story was telling me how Czechoslovakia was created in 1918.”

    David Tykvart’s maternal grandfather, meanwhile, regaled David with stories about life in Czechoslovakia under communism.

  • FIRST PERSON With Alexander Komives Magazine

    FIRST PERSON With Alexander Komives

    Alexander Komives is a nuclear physicist, an associate professor and a distant relative of Copernicus whose lifelong passion for astronomy inspired his work in physics. He also is the self-styled “lesser poet of the Department of Physics and Astronomy.” We asked him why he writes poetry, something seemingly removed from his day job.

  • Eric Malm ’14 champions investment in DePauw

    Eric Malm ’14 champions investment in DePauw

    Eric Malm ’14 believes DePauw alumni are largely responsible for the strength, improvement and future of the university, and he puts this passion into action as a frequent volunteer and philanthropic donor. The former management fellow returns to campus to speak on panels for the program, to give lectures and to participate in mock interview days with students. As an employee of J.P. Morgan, Eric also helps coordinate the company’s recruiting efforts at DePauw.
