constructionThe career and leadership development office will host the first “Life on Tap” of the fall semester on Tuesday, September 1, with talks from two Christendom alumni who have successfully established themselves in the world of architecture and construction — Dean Reineking (’09) and Frank O’Reilly (’83). The event will be held in St. Kilian’s Café from 7:30-9:30 p.m., with refreshments provided.

“Life on Tap” gives students the unique opportunity to ask questions and seek advice from these alumni mentors, especially on topics pertaining to prospective careers in the fields of architecture and construction.

Alumnus Dean Reineking earned his B.A. from Christendom College in 2009, where he served the college as student body president and majored in philosophy. He then earned his Masters Degree in architecture from the University of Miami, and, in 2014, began working at David M. Schwartz Architects, Inc., in Washington, D.C., one of the largest and most-recognized architecture companies in the United States.

Frank O’Reilly was one of the first graduates of Christendom College, earning his bachelor’s degree in history in 1983. Four years later, he founded Petrine Construction, the company responsible for the construction of many of the buildings on Christendom College’s Front Royal, Va. campus, including St. John the Evangelist Library, Christ the King Chapel, Crusader Gymnasium, and the new Madonna Hall Office Building. O’Reilly is also the owner of Rolling River Farm, and is the director of Killarney Castle, Ltd. — an Irish company that owns Flesk Castle in Killarney, Ireland, a National Monument.

All students and alumni are encouraged to attend. For a full schedule of this fall’s Life on Tap events, please visit christendom.edu.
