Raining Reunions & Recognition on campus….

Dear Alumnus/ Alumna,

“Reunion Weekend 2014” was an exhilarating time on campus, as alumni and families gathered in large numbers. The Silver Reunion of ’89 brought the largest contingent, nearly 120 alumni. The ’74 Ruby and ‘64/’65 Golden were not far behind. Even the ’94 batch (Mech Saras gang) had a mini reunion. All present appeared to be enjoying interactions with classmates and with the Institute. The extreme “greenness” of the campus elicited many admiring comments, as did CFI! Here are some media reports on the reunions:
