Reason # 702 to go All In for Loomis Chaffee

Our alumni use their Loomis Chaffee education to make a positive impact in the world. They can be found making a difference in a range of fields, from public service, law, and medicine to journalism and the arts.

Our 2021 commencement speaker, Dr. Pauline Chen '82, works at the intersection of her two chosen professions — as a respected physician and as a writer — to promote better understanding between doctors, patients, and the families they serve, and to humanize the healthcare delivery process for all.

Reason # 174 to go All In for Loomis Chaffee

Our students have wonderful opportunities through the Pearse Hub for Innovation (PHI) to practice creative problem-solving, design thinking, and collaboration. According to Scott MacClintic ’82, Director of Innovation, the purpose of the PHI is to encourage students to “make things and make a difference.”

One of the many projects that took place this year in the PHI was upcycling cardboard into paper (pictured above).
