Dear fellow alumni,
I’m excited to return to South Mountain for Reunion 2017 in May. I’ve been fortunate to attend five Reunions as an alumnus, and Reunion is always a great time to catch up with classmates, make new friends, and celebrate Lehigh pride with soon-to-be alumni on the eve of their graduation.
Maintaining a close connection to campus will always be important to me. I’ve found some pretty unique ways to be engaged as an alumnus, and this Reunion is no different: I’ll be DJing at this year’s Soirée Under the Stars on Friday, May 19 (6 p.m. – 11 p.m.).
My passion for DJing began with playing parties for my friends on campus, and I’ve continued pursuing music in the years since I moved to Harlem in New York City. Nowadays, I’m working in corporate communications at EY in midtown Manhattan during the week and playing shows in the city and elsewhere several times a month. I also self-produce an online radio show that was recently featured on a popular music blog. You can keep tabs on where I’ll be DJing next over at my website, and if you’re ever planning an event, feel free to shoot me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I can’t wait to provide the soundtrack as hundreds of us relive memories of partying in off-campus houses and on The Hill. Soirée Under the Stars will feature live music provided by the Lehigh Alumni Big Band Swing, heavy hors d’oeuvres, reception stations, an open wine and beer bar, and more! I’ll also be taking over Lehigh’s Snapchat account for the day and capturing all your best dance moves.
Don’t miss out on the fun. Visit alum.lu/reunion to register for Reunion by May 5. I’ll see you there!
