ReUnion 2005 program is award-winning
Union's ReUnion 2005 program has received special recognition from the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).
CASE will present its District II Accolades Silver Award to the College's Office of Alumni Relations at its annual conference in Pittsburgh, Feb. 5-7. Winning entries will become part of a multimedia showcase event.
"This is a wonderful recognition for the College and our ReUnion programming," said Nick Famulare '92, director of alumni relations. "More importantly, it is a testament to the hard work of our many alumni volunteers who make ReUnion so special."
NIFTY FIFTY: Class of 1955 members greet seniors at ReUnion 2005.
Nearly 1,500 alumni attended the annual alumni gathering last May. About 40 percent of the 50th ReUnion class attended for events ranging from a medallion ceremony to the handshake with members of the graduating class.
Thirty-five percent of attendees graduated in the last decade. Total giving from anniversary classes was nearly $3 million, with a participation rate of 43 percent.
The CASE awards entry was prepared by Betsy Seplowitz '96, associate director of alumni relations, who directs ReUnion programming. "Betsy has done a terrific job with ReUnion, and she represented the effort well in the entry to CASE," Famulare said.
Plans are under way for ReUnion 2006, set for May 18-21.
Alums can look forward to another full slate of activities, including a golf outing, foot race, medallion ceremony, class photographs, alumni parade and family picnic.
