NCE Class of 1956

Our 55th Anniversary Reunion was celebrated on the NJIT campus Friday-Sunday, May 20-22, 2011-with much success due to reunion co-chairs Ron Cohen and Piave Corradi.

Our Class had a great time attending lectures, viewing exhibits, tasting wines, attending the impressive Alumni Awards Ceremony and feasting at the dinner dance.  Some of us stayed in the dorms- something we never experienced during our student days- and had a ball.

For those who missed it we hope you will come to our 60th Reunion in 2016.

In the meantime join us for other alumni events. Visit the Alumni Events page on this site for upcoming events.  And watch your e-mail and snail mail for announcements of events.

You are always welcome!

We hope to see you then!

Sharing Memories; Creating New Ones at our 50th

Thanks to the hard work of Reunion Co-Chairs Ron Cohen and Piave Corradi, our 50th reunion on May 19 and 20, 2006 was a real wing-ding, with about 60 people in attendance.

Those of us who hadn’t seen the campus in years just couldn’t get over the place.  The buildings, the dorms, the athletic center, the landscaping…quite a shock to those of us who remember the campus as a few old buildings in Newark.

Many of us were here in time for the cocktail reception given by President Bob Altenkirch and his wife, Beth. 

Eberhardt Hall itself, having just undergone a prize-winning historic restoration, was definitely one of the stars of the show.  The beauty and elegance of the place made us all feel very proud.  Eberhardt provided a perfect venue for our evening of nostalgia, laughter, and camaraderie.

Saturday was jam-packed with activities, including a guided bus tour of Newark.  So much is happening there, and it was fascinating to see and hear about what was, what is and what will be in different sections of the city.

The weekend was capped off by dinner and dancing in the atrium of the sparkling new Student Center, where some of us comported ourselves with dignity and some of us did not.
