Alumni Weekend Update

Hey all! The registration link for Alumni Weekend will go live in early 2015. Stay tuned for that.

We are happy to announce that Dinosaur BBQ will be catering Saturday's lunch at the house. They'll be cooking on site, you don't want to miss their pulled pork and brisket, trust us!!!

Also, we've secured a block of rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn in Troy due to high demand for rooms (and we still have a few rooms left at the Albany Marriott). Check out the Alumni Weekend subpage for the group code.

Have a great Christmas!
