FALL 2017 Reunion was a hit!
Thanks for making the #Fall2017Reunion a huuuuuge hit!
With an enthusiastic crowd of more than 170 people in attendance, our #Fall2017Reunion - spotlighting Pulitzer Prize-winners, stellar alumni and students in panel discussions, plus a keynote by Tony Schwartz - was hailed by the vast majority who have completed the survey as a resounding success!
All of us here at the Office of Student Publications owe a big thank-you to the Alumni Planning Committee who set aside countless hours for conference calls and emails over the nine months leading up to the event. They never got a proper curtain call, so please applaud Alan Fanger, Beth Fertig, Sara Fitzgerald, Joyce Frieden, Bonnie Hawkins, Leba Hertz, Julie Rovner, Stephanie Steinberg, and Sue Warner. They shepherded myriad details, moderated panels, and made it all come together seamlessly! Another key indictor of success of the event was the fact that it, along with Legacy Tile sales, raised more than $4,000 which enabled us to price tickets more affordably for students -- more than two dozen participated -- and additional funds that went into work-study.
Thanks to everyone who generously supported our students, and made this a memorable event for so many!
Keynote speaker Tony Schwartz gave a powerful, and personal, testament about what he learned while researching his book, Trump: The Art of the Deal. Download a PDF of his script.
