Alums and friends of the College have been invited to Celebrate Vassar at events around the country where they reconnect with classmates; meet other Vassar alums, parents, and friends; and enjoy great conversation over dinner. The gatherings encourage guests to reflect on what Vassar means to them, what they carry forward from the College today, and what can be done to inspire and empower generations of students to come.

In February, President Elizabeth H. Bradley, along with host Diane Robinson ’91, President of the Vassar Club of South Florida, welcomed alums and friends from the region to connect over dinner with conversations about their collective commitment to make a difference in Vassar’s future. In addition to keynote remarks by President Bradley, Assistant Professor of Art Gordon Hall, Deputy to the President and Secretary to the Board of Trustees Wesley Dixon, Dean of the College Carlos Alamo-Pastrana, and Student Philanthropy Council Co-President Dhriti Seth ’24 discussed life on campus and in the classroom and asked audience members to reflect on their experiences as students.

Welcomed by the Vassar Club of the Bay Area and hosted by Vassar trustees Francesca Amann ’91 and Tyrone Forman ’92, guests enjoyed an evening full of wonderful conversations and connections. Eungie Joo ’91, Curator of Contemporary Art at SFMoMA, was also part of the program.
