Harlaxton Society Officer Profiles
Meet the Harlaxton Society Officers
President — Matthew Page '94
Director, Global Client Strategy
Korn Ferry International
Among my most life changing experiences, I would have to place my semester at Harlaxton near the top. To put it simply, you don’t come back from Harlaxton the same person. 20 years later the memories of my time in the Manor are just as vibrant. From all the excursions around England; to playing soccer against local colleges; and the many trips to the Gregory or Kings Arms: the exposure to another culture left its mark.
I feel very fortunate to have attended Harlaxton. I’m thrilled to be a part of the Harlaxton Society where I can continue to reconnect with this important part of my life, contribute back to my alma mater, as well as have an impact on others who are just beginning their journey to Harlaxton. So it is with great pride and honor that I serve as the Harlaxton Society President. I encourage you to join us, if you are a Harlaxton alum.
Vice president — Karen Katz '99
Chief Executive Officer
Phi Delta Epsilon Medical Fraternity
Some of my strongest college memories come from my semester at Harlaxton. I learned to love the Spice Girls while learning about British history in a magical place that would later remind me of Hogwarts. I favored Fridays (or any day) at the Greg, my trips to London and exploring the luscious gardens and entry mile of my British home. It’s been 15 years since I was there as a student and its remarkable how many alumni I’ve met who have similar stories of their own. These stories are unique with threads of the familiar. I invite you to connect with our Harlaxton College family and celebrate the changes and traditions that make our manor such a magical place.
