Saluki reunion, New York City

Reunion was held in the lobby of the Hilton, in midtown Manhattan. We did not have the pleasure of watching the Salukis play in the NCAA tournament this year, but spirit was high just the same. We saw and got updates from:

Robert Engel- graduated around 1994, and has been working for the Defense Language Institute in San Antonio. Also wrote a book: From College to Careers: Listening in the Real World, by Thomson Heinle. It's linked here.

Mary Ellen Durfee- graduated in around 1997; living and teaching in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Has fond memories of Saluki friends and the good old days around Carbondale.

Richie Brown- living and working in Crown Point, Brooklyn, was on his own home turf. He and his wife are looking forward to visiting southern Illinois, and running the River to River race.

Ania Hreczuch- living and working in Champaign, but sick of it. Is considering moving either to Turkey, or to the remote South Pacific. That will get her out of the midwest, won't it?

There are more; I tell them to spread the word. If you'd like to be on the e-mail list, write me. If you'd like to post here and tell us what you're up to, please do (follow directions to the side). See you in Denver!
