What was your most meaningful experience during Alumni Reunion 2011?

My most meaningful experience was leading the Walking Campus Tour. It was fun for me to hear alumni’s stories from when they were students here, and it was fun for them to hear my stories as a current student. I thought this year’s Alumni Reunion was a great success. I’m glad that I was able to be a part of it.

My most meaningful experience was talking with the alumni as they came in to pick up their registration packets on Friday morning. It was so nice to see old college friends reconnect and be so excited to be at Reunion. I enjoyed hearing their stories about their times here at Rollins.  I also really enjoyed the campus-wide Lunch on the Lawn event!

The Backpacks to Briefcases alumni panel and student interaction afterwards. [It was] very interesting and I enjoyed meeting such successful alumni.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Golden Celebration dinner, and meeting the alumni at this event. It was really interesting for both parties, as we learned about each other’s Rollins memories, both old and new.

I think that my most meaningful experience included all of the different conversations with alumni. So many of them have interesting stories and so much insight into how the institution has changed over the years. Even though I sometimes only spoke with individuals for a few minutes, I was able to see the connection that they had with Rollins and why they return to visit.

My tour with the alumni; I heard so many great stories a from when they were Tars; and also, at the tennis tournament when the players were reunited with their coach; it was adorable. You could hear the youthfulness in their voices.

I really enjoyed meeting an alumna who came to celebrate her 60th reunion. It was amazing to see how happy she was to be back at Rollins.

I had some very great discussions with 50th reunion alumni on their experiences at Rollins and how things are different and how they feel about Rollins today. I think my largest contribution [during Reunion] was to the KD open house to make KD alumnae feel more welcome to reconnect with their chapter. It was extremely rewarding.
