Incredibly, it has been 25 years since we graduated. It is hard to imagine that we were freshmen so many years ago. Reunion 2012 is almost upon us, and it is a wonderful opportunity to come back to campus and check out how Brandeis and our classmates have changed since we were students. I hope that you will be making plans to attend and get in touch with others from the great Class of 1987 to encourage them to do the same. In the meantime, please send me any updates on your lives, a sort of warm-up for our big Reunion in June. I extend warmest wishes to everyone.
