Faculty Q & A

PH: Bierowski

Thomas Bierowski, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of English

How long have you been working at Alvernia?

TOO LONG. Just kidding. Since Fall 2005. 6 years? 7? Who’s counting?

Can you please describe your position here at Alvernia?

Associate Professor of English. I teach lit classes, creative writing and critical theory.

What would you say is your favorite part about your job?

 Showing that literature and life go hand-in-hand. Understand one and you’ll understand the other.

When you aren't at Alvernia, what do you spend your time doing? 

Writing stories, working on my comic book, playing guitar, gardening, reading for pleasure, and walking around wondering about stuff.

Where is your favorite place to eat on or off campus?

I’m a fan of Skrepesi’s Sandwich Shop on the corner of Lancaster and Grace. Also the new Cuban sandwich at the Kestrel Café in Bernardine Hall is scrum-dilly-iscious.
