Several reunions were held as part of the inaugural Fall Fest 2009 weekend, including a first-ever decades reunion for School of Nursing alumni from the 1960’s. The committee planning events included representatives from most years of the decade, and they were charged with calling their classmates and encouraging their participation.
On Nov. 6, alumni held a cocktail reception in the newly refurbished Kalmanowitz (formerly Campion) Hall, giving alumni an opportunity to meet with spouses, guests, and current nursing graduate students. The next morning, the alumni met for Mass in St. Ignatius Church, celebrated by USF Chancellor John Lo Schiavo, S.J., followed by a brunch on campus. School of Nursing Dean Judy Karshmer then led a tour of the facilities used by current students.
