Alumni from Far and Wide: Reunion 2006
Ruth (Cohen) Perelson ('58)
A whirlwind of receptions, activities, and awards characterized Reunion 2006, held last October. Many alumni attended a women's volleyball game—and were treated to a thrilling five-setter against Mount Saint Vincent. Many more later danced the night away to a live band at the All-Class Reunion Eve Dinner. The next morning, alumni listened raptly as Columbia University Professor Samuel Freedman read from his book Who She Was: My Search for My Mother's Life, which chronicles the life of his mother, Eleanor Hatkin, a Baruch graduate.
Reunions provide an opportunity to catch up with old friends, make new connections, and attend special performances and presentations. Simply put: It's a landmark lifetime moment.
