California Dreamin’

John Knight reports his classmate Jim Wareck’s latest update -“I always enjoy seeing classmates, especially in La La Land (no singing or dancing), but few can afford the opportunity to learn so much about something so unfamiliar as atmospherics as a casual dinner with Mark Beaubien. Granted I was only able to understand one out of every two dozen words, but it was great to hear how terrific and crucial the work he is doing, plus he gets to fly around in badass planes. It was also fun to reminisce about DA and the time he kicked me off the radio-which I probably deserved. Wonderful to hear about his daughters at Deerfield and how they are excelling in the arts. He showed me a picture of his senior Lily singing in front of the Memorial Building and apparently Kentucky Fried Chicken is sponsoring entertainment now with KFC concerts. So that is cool too.” – Jim Wareck

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?
