Baruch’s Office of Alumni Relations invites graduates of the classes of 1946, 1956, 1966, and 1981, along with Baruch faculty, staff, and other alumni, to celebrate Reunion 2006 on Saturday, October 14 and Sunday, October 15. The reunion festivities will begin on Saturday with an opening volleyball game, and include an open-bar welcome reception; a Reunion Eve dinner, during which attendees can review class yearbooks and exchange information; breakout sessions for conversations and networking; and a Saturday night dance party featuring popular music from the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s.
Sunday’s activities include a buffet brunch with members of all celebrating classes; the presentation of the Alumni Allegiance and Alumni of Distinction Awards; and distribution of anniversary class certificates. Participants will also have an opportunity to attend a book talk with New York Times writer and Columbia University professor Samuel G. Freedman, whose memoir, Who She Was: My Search for My Mother’s Life, talks about his mother’s time as a student at City Downtown (as Baruch was then known).
Other activities include tours of the campus, a performance at the BPAC, a viewing at the Mishkin Gallery, and a presentation at the Wasserman Trading Floor - Subotnick Financial Services Center.
The total cost for the weekend is $156.00; $85.00 for Sunday-only participants; and $75.00 for Saturday-only participants. For more information on Reunion 2006, visit www.baruch.cuny.edu/alumni/reunion2006/.
