Answering the Call to Service

On April 10th, I started my first day back on campus serving as Assistant Director of Alumni Relations with fellow classmate Margaret Temesvari ’92. If you’re in the neighborhood, my new office is on the first floor in Ephraim Williams and I’ve got the best view on campus, facing the Caswell Library, the Dining Hall and Hitchcock House. The week before moving up here I had the pleasure to see Hussain Aga Khan ’92, Ashley Prout ’92, Kristina Hess ’92, Liz Cooper ’92, Justin Sherratt ’95 and Tamiko Wagner ’94 at Columbia University in NYC, where Hussain presented his awesome work photographing maritime life and talked about his dives and travels, conservation efforts, and the non-profit organization Focused on Nature. I’m excited for our 25th Reunion this summer and appreciative of the opportunity to serve.

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?
