This week, Island School alumni 21 and older gathered in various cities across the US and Bahamas to “Have One On Us”! These events were hosted by the members of the Alumni Advisory Board in an effort to establish stronger regional alumni groups by reconnecting with old friends and getting to know one another, as well as promote CONCHtribution. The first one was in Boston on Wednesday night. Despite the snow and cold weather, 17 alumni, ranging from Fall 1999 to Spring 2006, weathered the storm, in true Island School fashion, to meet up and establish some cross-semester relationships in the region.
On Thursday evening, members of the Alumni Advisory Board hosted events in Denver, San Francisco, and Nassau! These are relatively uncharted territories for Island School alumni events so it was very exciting to have such successful events in each of those locations. In Denver, 8 alumni turned out for the night at a rooftop bar. Meanwhile, in San Francisco, 6 alumni gathered at a speakeasy to hang out and get to know one another. And finally in Nassau, although the turnout was the smallest of them all, they still had a great time bonding over their shared experience.
The next “Have One On Us” event is in New York City on November 27th. Stay tuned for time and location. If you would like to update your address, are interested in hosting an event in your city, or want to find out if any Island School alumni live nearby, email firstname.lastname@example.org!
