Diana Laskin Siegal points out that the surviving members of the Class of 1952 are now over the age of 90, and wonders if their longevity is due to the campus water or the beer and pizza at Saldi’s.

SOME ENCHANTED EVENING: These partygoers from the pioneering Class of 1952, which celebrates its 70th Reunion this year, swooned to the hits of the day at the university’s first Freshman Frolic, held on May 7, 1949. To commemorate their 70th, class members are partnering with Brandeis archivists to collect background information on a range of evocative, historic photos — like this one. (Courtesy Robert D.
