Memories of our 30th CLASS REUNION!
Our class celebrated its 30th class reunion on the weekend of May 20-22, 2011 on the NJIT campus. It was a remarkable experience.
The campus has grown to 40 acres and finally includes the Central High School building. Improvements include a multi-level parking deck, a modern student center with several choices of dining venues, air conditioned dorms, a bell clock tower, a modern athletic center on Lock Street, and landscaped green spaces all over campus including a rooftop garden. 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.
Plus, 4 more colleges have been added under the NJIT umbrella.
The weekend provided many opportunities to soak it all up.We browsed through art exhibits and student capstone projects. We toured the campus, part of which sits on the site of the old Club Warren (sigh!). We attended stimulating lectures, tasted wines from far off places, 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 and whimsical umbrellas was a delight. For some classmates, the experience of staying in a dorm room helped us understand why college is so much fun these days.
Time will race by and our 35th Reunion will soon be upon us. Keep it in your planning calendar and plan on joining us in the Spring of 2016. You won't be disappointed.
In the meantime, visit the Alumni Events page on this site and come to some of the events offered. Remember, you are welcome at any alumni event.
It's a good way to network and meet friends, old and new.
Looking forward to seeing you soon,
The Class of ’81 Reunion Committee
