NEW COLLEGE NEWSLETT The Alumni Reunion will be held Memorial Day weekend, May 23-26. The format this year will vary somewhat from that of the past. The initial reunion will be held late Friday afternoon (May 23) in South Hall. There, alumni and faculty will get together over cocktails and hors d 'oeuvres. Saturday morning (May 24) there will be a brief meeting in Hamilton Center to discuss the prospects of organizing an Alumni Association. After this, you will be whisked away, via a double-decker bus, to a fun-filled Beach-Blanket-Bingo blast at one of Sarasota's lovely beaches. Saturday evening, there will be a Palm Court Party, equipped with students, kegs and music. On Sunday morning (May 25), there will be a catered brunch at Caples. Monday morning (May 26), we would like the alumni to provide a career counseling session for New College students. Alumni could provide suggestions on how to prepare for entry into specific fields, or how and where to find jobs. The cost of this weekend is $15. per person --children free. In order to defray expenses some faculty and local residents have offered to accommodate visiting alumni. Since the number of these accommodations is limited, Casa Sarasota, located next to the college, is offering rooms to New College alumni at a discount rate: $16. for a single; $19. for a double. Some alumni have requested that a list be printed of those going to the reunion so that car-pooling can be arranged. Below are the names and addresses of alumni who will probably attend the reunion.

I finally graduated myself after twelve years and admit that I am enjoying my retirement. So, too, I hope you are enJoying graduate schools, your new professions, families, trips and travels. 5


I learned a lot at New College about many things and perhaps most of all about myself. Now in looking back what I value most are the personal contacts I had with young people, many of whom have become friends for life. Those friendships, many letters, telephone calls, occasional visits continue to enrich my life There are now New College graduates living in many parts of the United States. From what I hear they continue to enjoy seeing one another and perhaps one day will form nuclei of Alumni Associations. Those three years (or was it four or five?) will seem increasingly important years as you look back on them. That is one reason why I think this Newsletter is a good idea. Don't you feel, as I do, that there are many people you'd love to hear from? I've been going though my twelve year files which contain hundreds of letters. Did you suspect I'd keep all your letters? So many wonderful ones even now I hate to part with them. You may have had trouble writing term papers but you surely could write good letters. Why not send one once in a while via this Newsletter. It would help us all keep in touch and share interesting bits of information. I'm tempted to pass on news I have from many graduates, but that might be too gossipy. Better if you share own news with each other through the Letter. There are many of you I'd love to hear from again and now that I have retired I have a lot of time for answering letters. And incidentally I always accept telephone calls (collect) from practically anywhere. Just try me! (813 -388-3502). Marion C. Hoppin 1212 Center Place Sarasota, FL 33577 6
