Class Correspondent

Greetings, Class of 2002! I hope everyone had a great summer. My husband and I escaped the summer heat by visiting the beaches of our town, Scituate, Mass., a harbor community just south of Boston. One of the perks of living in the Boston area is that I get to visit the Brandeis campus every so often. I reunited recently with some Brandeis swimming and diving team alumni who were on campus. While the campus has many new buildings and looks quite different from the campus we knew in 2002, it was reassuring to remember that many friendships from our college years continue as though time has not changed anything at all. It was great to catch up with my former teammates and hear about the exciting changes and events in their lives. I also enjoy hearing about the exciting events involving members of the Class of 2002. As always, if you have any updates you would like to share, please email me!
