Warm embraces, huge smiles, hearty kisses, and of course, selfies, characterized the first 30 minutes of the annual Summer in the City event, which brought together alumni from various years and commemorated the 10-year anniversary of the Class of 2006.
More than 100 alumni from the Classes of 1971, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 attended the special reunion.
The Rabbit Field buzzed with positive energy and catch-up conversations on a warm Beirut evening on June 4, 2016. Students Riwa S., Samia AH., Jana H., and Alma S. entertained the crowd with some soulful numbers.
Outgoing Alumni Association President Bill Crays ’56 welcomed the newest group of alumni to join the association, and alumna Dyala Badran ’06 invited everyone to enjoy the evening, while reminiscing about members of her class.
After enjoying delicious refreshments, hotdogs, and even on-the-spot-made ice cream, alumni gathered to watch members of the class of 2006 dig out their time capsule. Rediscovering old sports caps, journals, letters to self, kuffieh, a soccer shoe, Tshirts and many more, alumni relived special moments with their classmates, sharing and creating new ones once again.
