It worked well minus some weather woes,” said Granger. She said more than 100 families came, with 348 people officially checking in and registering. “This year, the Fall Fest and Alumni Chili Fest were combined which provided a fun carnival feel and provided an oppor¬ tunity for families and alumni to interact,” said Lauren McCauslin, Director of Alumni Relations and Annual Giving. The Development and Alumni Rela¬ tions Office had a few exciting activities ac¬ cording to Rebecca Deluca, Assistant Direc¬ tor of Communications for the office. “We celebrated special reunion class¬ es, ending in 2 and 7, and had a special Reunion Trolley Tour and an exclusive Re¬ union Hard Hat Tour of the New Science and Technology Center,” said Deluca.
