’83 Lunch Meeting

I took PEODU to lunch recently. That’s President Elect of Denison University, Dr. Adam Weinberg. I couldn’t bear the thought of him no longer being 30 miles away, although we’ve only seen each other four times in the six years he’s been nearby…

And if you asked the thoughtful and reflective former defense-man from Dallas, he would say he wishes he had kept up with Deerfield, and his classmates a little bit better. As he nears age 50 and reflects on the formative moments in his life, turns out we were a big part of it.

To remedy his melancholy, Adam swore on his Class of ’83 tie that he would be at our 30th reunion. (Register now…) He then followed that up with a bit of a surprise: a recurring credit card gift for five years in recognition of his love for DA and our upcoming time together as a class…

Let’s keep working at keeping our lines of communication open and sharing laughs together when we have the chance. We are an incredible group, this Class of ’83.

Thanks for the reminder Adam. We wish you well in your next chapter.

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?
