2016 Reunion Weekend – Lake Effect

Today we join Alumni in Norris as part of the Reunion/Homecoming Weekend celebration!  We are recording four sessions, one of which, Who Are You Because of NU?, will be live streamed at 1:30pm.

We began this morning with a recording of the Lake Effect Session.  University Archivist Kevin Leonard, gave a brief and engaging overview of Northwestern’s history before turning the floor over to Gordon Segal, a Northwestern Trustee and member of the class of ’60.

Segal took the alumni audience on a journey through the architectural story of Northwestern up to the present day and into the future, describing plans for the new Student Center.  He shared some of the collaborations and thought processes that lead to the ongoing creation of this unique campus community.  Segal spoke with a fondness and pride shared by those present, each of whom has called Northwestern home.  The session concluded with audience questions, each of which showed the alumni community’s continual love for and investment in Northwestern.
