    Read “reviews” of Reunion 2011 directly from the alumni participants:

    I wanted to congratulate and thank you and the team in the Alumni office that organized the reunions for the classes of '61, '71 and '86. Personally, I had a blast!!! I can't describe to you how good it felt to be back on the SCW Beren campus, see friends and classmates etc. I enjoyed every minute and the culmination was the graduation! I only regret that not all of the members of the class of ’71 could attend and that it ended so quickly. Thank you again for taking me back in time!!! – Paula From ’71S

    [The alumni events for the YC class of 1961] went extremely well and far beyond my expectations.  I think I can speak for my former classmates and report that we were all extremely pleased with your roles and the planning of the event and without exception we all agreed to plan on returning for our 75th. - Calvin Goldscheider ’61YC

    I'm so glad I was able to participate in the reunion.  While President Joel's and Dean Bacon's remarks were uplifting as ever, seeing the paths that the alumnae took since we graduated was equally inspiring and deeply moving.  Everyone there reflected on how their YU experience molded their development and played a role in the kind of person they each came to be.  It was an elegant, memorable evening. – Barbara Kessel ’71S

    The reunion was an outstanding success and we the Alumni were treated with warmth, respect and dignity far exceeding anything we might have expected. Graduating in humbler times fifty years ago I was personally awed by the setting and nature of our reunion dinner at the Museum of Jewish Heritage. In addition the VIP treatment afforded us at the Izod Arena including the sumptuous breakfast, graduation ceremonies and subsequent refreshments left us with a strong feeling of being highly valued. I hope your additional fund raising efforts [for the Reunion Class Gift] will be successful. - Fred Krause '61YC  

    You created quite a challenge and set the bar quite high, with all the hype for the reunion series of events, but the reunion events not only met but even surpassed my high expectations. – Aaron Reichel ‘71YC

    The reunion allowed me to be inspired by new faculty and deans while catching up with those from my day.  The networking with friends was the best of all.  I even made new acquaintances since three graduation years participate in the same reunion. I am enjoying the Torah U'Madda mug for my coffee every day.  The renewal of the Torah U'Madda logo and its prominence on campus, at the reunion, and even on custom-made cookies at the reunion dinner reassured me that Yeshiva University has the right priorities. - Debbie Fruchter Robinson '67S
