  Reunion Weekend '01

Reunited...and it feels so good!
Reunion Weekend '01 rekindles Kellogg friendships and school spirit

The cool weather did nothing to dampen the spirits of more than 500 Kellogg alumni and guests who returned to Evanston for an action-packed Reunion Weekend May 4-6. Alums were treated to several social events -- including a gala dinner, class parties, a golf outing, BBQ and a trip to Wrigley Field for a Chicago Cubs game -- as well as classroom sessions with Kellogg professors Steve Rogers and Mohanbir Sawhney. Rogers discussed developments in Kellogg's entrepreneurship curriculum while Sawhney talked about leveraging the Internet to create shareholder value. Irv Pfeiffer, alumni consultant at Kellogg's Career Management Center, led a workshop titled "Dream-Job Search Campaign." In addition, Professor Jeanne Brett (pictured bottom left) was presented with the Faculty Choice Award. Many alums also took advantage of the weekend to attend one of the sold-out Special K performances.

Pulling all these activities together required the talents of Kellogg's entire Alumni Relations Office. Associate Director Paula Trail played a key role in orchestrating the weekend. "It took a total team effort to make this event the phenomenal success it was," said Trail, praising her colleagues. "This was my first year working on reunion from start to finish and I was thrilled with the outcome, especially since we heard from so many alums who had a great time."

Lori Winters Samuels '86 was one of those voicing appreciation. "Those of us who travel to reunion from far away might wonder if the hassle of leaving our families for the weekend is worth it," said Samuels. "As soon as you see that first familiar face, there is no question. Kellogg reunions never disappoint."

These photos capture a few of the memorable moments.
