The Bishop’s School Alumni Association hosted dinners for young alumni in recent weeks in three different cities.
Alumni Director Sarah Garro said, “With these events, we are hoping to bring a little of Bishop's to our alumni who are away at college and remind them that they are an important part of our alumni community.”
On Nov. 7, 10 TBS alumni now attending Columbia University, Fordham University, New York University and Barnard College in New York City met David Thompson, Bishop’s English faculty and director of diversity and community life, for dinner at Community Food and Juice.
Six Chicago-area alumni from Northwestern University and University of Chicago met college counselor Marcia Setzer at California Pizza Kitchen for a little slice of home on Nov. 13.
And at Tiger Mama Boston in the Fenway area, 13 alumni attending Boston College, Boston University, Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Northeastern University and Tufts University dined with director of college counseling Gretchen Gleason on Dec. 6 at a venue many of the attendees said they had been wanting to try.
It’s always nice to catch up with old friends and mentors!
