Hadden designed the 3D-printed memento gifted at the Fall 2018 dedication of The Dr. Welch Workshop: A Makerspace at Penn College – just one of the ways in which she's left her mark.
Hadden designed the 3D-printed memento gifted at the Fall 2018 dedication of The Dr. Welch Workshop: A Makerspace at Penn College – just one of the ways in which she’s left her mark.

An article by 2019 alumna Nina M. Hadden, recounting the challenging and rewarding opportunities that her Penn College education has brought about, has been published by the Industrial Designers Society of America. “This wonderfully creative major encompasses so many different outlets and allows you to explore just about any field you could think of,” she wrote of her four-year degree. “Though there are what could be considered ‘traditional’ jobs, I have learned that there are actually many careers that an industrial design major can go into.” Hadden’s piece fittingly mentions the quality of the college’s faculty, as Thomas E. Ask, professor of industrial design – adviser to the Society of Inventors and Mad Scientists – was elected in 2019 as IDSA’s Northeast District Educator. In that capacity, he represents all industrial design programs at colleges and universities within the region.
