What a weekend! Nearly 2,200 alumni and guests attended Reunion Weekend 2011, surpassing last year’s attendance by 10%. With the help of 402 amazing Class Committee Members, members of the classes of 1961, 1966, 1971, 1976, 1981, 1986, 1991, 1996, 2001, 2006, and 2010 came back to reconnect with old friends; attend fabulous evening gatherings including Friday night’s Welcome Reception at Cipriani on 42nd Street and the Class Dinners at Del Posto, Pier Sixty and The Lighthouse; and continue their lifelong learning at 15 panels and presentations delivered by 12 faculty members, six administrators, and 22 alumni speakers on topics that ranged from real estate to the banking crisis to social enterprise. We thank all our speakers for their time and for sharing their expertise with their classmates and fellow alumni.
