1980 Update

Brian Solik writes: “By God’s grace we survived Hurricane Sandy with no damage, although we are only 20 minutes from the Jersey Shore. The roller coaster in the ocean that all of you saw-my kids and I had ridden it many times. The Bible says that ‘heaven and earth will pass away…’ A year ago I celebrated my 50th by jumping into the ocean (in January!) right next to that pier. I am sure most of you are feeling the effects of aging, except for a couple of our classmates who somehow compete in triathlons (I haven’t figured out how they do that). I broke my leg in August playing ultimate frisbee, had surgery, and am slowly getting back to playing flag football and frisbee with teenagers. One of these days I’ll have to call it quits…but not yet.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Upon graduating from Deerfield, alumni enter a diverse network of former Deerfield students. Deerfield alumni have ventured into almost every area of employment, and many are at the top of their respective fields. The advantages of this vast network are numerous and significant, as every member of the Deerfield family receives the following:

Alumni are also eligible for alumni awards, such as the Ashley Award, Heritage Award, and the Mimi Morsman Award.

There are no membership fees or dues for members of the Deerfield family, but Deerfield does ask for assistance in a few areas. First of all, in order for Deerfield to have the most up-to-date records possible, we encourage members to keep us apprised of their current contact info. Alumni are also urged to direct all concerns and suggestions regarding Deerfield’s operations through the Executive Committee, the governing body of the Alumni Association. The committee acts as the voice of the alumni body, and works closely with the school administration. In order to keep tuition affordable and the quality of a Deerfield education at its highest, the Academy depends upon the continuing support of alumni and their families. This support can take the form of annual or capital gifts, or time spent volunteering on behalf of Deerfield.

There are Deerfield Clubs in many major American cities. Please visit here for more information on specific clubs and their sponsored events. 

Of course! Be sure to read the latest issue of From Albany Road in your email’s in-box for current news of what is happening on campus. As we also send out periodic invitations, it’s always best to make sure we have your current physical address. And if you do plan on visiting campus, why not tell us ahead of time?
