Hello, Class of 2002! I hope the year 2012 is treating you well! When we graduated in 2002, the year 2012 seemed so far away and was not even a thought in my mind. But time has crept up on us, and our 10th Reunion is here. While so many things have changed in the world and in our lives over the past 10 years, our roots at Brandeis are unshakable, and I am looking forward to attending Reunion and reconnecting with old friends. Members of our class have been hard at work planning Reunion activities, including the always-popular Modfest and Stein Night. I hope you can come to Reunion, relive old memories and renew lifelong friendships. See you in June!
