Goddard Storyphone: Thomas Calagna '71
Thomas Calagna (BA RUP '71) called in to the Goddard Storyphone to share his memories of his time at Goddard College from 1968-1971. He recalls Theatre Faculty member Paul Vela and tells us that his best friends from Goddard are still in his life, 42 years later.
A collaboration between Goddard alumnus Jonathan Katz (BA RUP '71) and Dustin Byerly (BA RUP '01), the Storyphone is part of Goddard's 150th Anniversary Celebration of honoring our past and connecting with the Goddard community. Some of the stories we receive will be edited and featured on the Goddard College website; all of the stories will be preserved in the Goddard College Archives.
