Find out which of our alums is celebrating a promotion, a new career, or their start-up business in Class Notes. See who is making news, and take a moment to remember those who have passed on.

Every month, we find ourselves short on news from classes before the 1990s. We want to share all of our alumni’s accomplishments, but we don’t know what you’re up to if you don’t tell us. Please email us at with your job changes, retirement news, promotions, or wedding and baby announcements, and write “class notes” in the subject line.
