Our 35th CLASS REUNION IS OVER!
On the weekend of May 20-22, 2011 our class celebrated its 35th class reunion on the university campus.
As one of the first graduating classes of NJIT there were many changes for us to absorb. The old campus has grown to 40 acres and finally includes the Central High School building, now called 'Central King Building'. There is a multi-level parking deck, a modern student center with several choices of dining venues, air conditioned dorms, a bell tower, a modern athletic center up on Lock Street, and beautifully landscaped green spaces all over campus. The old Eberhardt Hall has been restored to 1880’s elegance and is now the Eberhardt Hall Alumni Center and home of the University Club.
And there are 4 more colleges under the NJIT umbrella!
Changes notwithstanding, the weekend provided a host of activities to enjoy. We browsed through student capstone projects and art exhibits. We toured the campus, part of which sits on the site of the old Club Warren (a landmark of memories for many of us). We attended stimulating lectures, sampled wines, and were filled with pride for the accomplishments of the alumni recognized at the Alumni Awards Ceremony. The Reunion dinner dance under the arches of the Eiffel Tower was a delightful surprise, and the party on the roof of the new Campus Center was like one we could never even imagined in the old Center. For some Reunion attendees, the experience of staying in a dorm room helped them understand why college is so much more fun these days.
So many of our Class missed this wonderful weekend. We hope that you keep our 40th Reunion in Spring of 2016 on your planning calendar. Plan on joining us ... you won't be disappointed!
