NCE Class of 1950
OUR 60th CLASS REUNION Was A Weekend to Remember!
We were told that we did a fine job of representing the “most senior class at the reunion” and we hope it’s true. We did our best. Seven members of our class were there ... Shimon “Bert” Schwarzschild, Bob Block, Bernie Gropp, John Kaufman, Stan Mruk, Jim Dennehy, and Fred Singer, and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.
It was truly a euphoric weekend, from the moment we were greeted by smiling students in a golf cart on Friday afternoon to Sunday morning when the last of us were waved off after coffee and bagels.
We were astonished by the campus, from newly restored Eberhardt Hall where we held our kickoff cocktail reception, to the sparkling new Campus Center where we had our dinner dance on Saturday Night. In between we enjoyed campus tours led by students, a stimulating lecture by Maurie Cohen, an NJIT faculty member, a garden party at the historic mansion now occupied by our President Bob Altenkirch and his wife, Beth), a guided bus tour of Newark, a terrific Alumni Awards Ceremony and a great deal of good eating and drinking.
On Saturday night, the Altenkirchs, hosted a cocktail reception before dinner. As soon as we put down our dessert spoons, the band started up in earnest, and some of us did our best to show the young ones what they have to look forward to.
