Dear RISD Class of 1965,
Can you believe it? It’s your 50th Reunion! And the Class of 1965 will be celebrating in style.
Take out that yearbook! Check out those pictures! Turn on the old tunes! Then mark your calendars for October 9-11, 2015 and get yourself ready to attend RISD by Design, Alumni Reunion + Parents’ Weekend. It is going to be one great, not-to-be-missed gathering. In addition to celebrating reunion, you are invited to attend the inauguration of RISD’s 17th President, Rosanne Somerson, on Friday, October 9. It will be a wonderful time to get celebrate everything RISD, and get caught up on what’s the same, what’s changed, and all that is planned for the future.
To commemorate this special occasion, RISD will be creating a 50th Class Book, full of pictures and stories from members of our class. You’ll want to be in this one for sure!
To be included, please email RISD Alumni Relations with the following info:
- “1965 50th Class Book” in the subject line
- Your full name, including any maiden name
- Your full contact info: home address, phone, email
- Your major while at RISD
- A short autobiographical sketch of your life and career since graduation (due to space limitations, information may be edited)
- A current photograph
You can also mail these materials to: Claire Robinson, RISD Alumni Relations + Special Events, 2 College Street, Providence, RI 02903. Even if you are unable to attend the reunion, please send in your story and photo! A 50th Class Book will be mailed to you after the reunion.
The deadline for submissions is July 31, 2015. Because of design and printing considerations, no late submissions can be accepted. (Just like those Freshman 3-D projects!)
If you have any questions regarding the Class Book or 50th Reunion activities, please contact Claire Robinson at (401) 454-6379 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
