When a group of Posties who graduated in the late 1970s and early ’80s gather in Athens, they meet at the Union.

That’s where I first met Theresa Hitchens, who was voted alum of the year a couple years ago but had yet to pick up the ward. That’s because she lives in Switzerland, where she directs the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research.
