alumni in action

Fall 2014

Basement buddies

The Deller Cellar Dwellers, a.k.a. the proud residents of Delaware Hall’s basement in 1973–74, gathered for a 40th reunion in New York City. Some have remained friends throughout the years; others hadn’t seen one another since graduation. The evening was spent forgetting everything that occurred during the past four decades.

Try matching the “after” Dwellers to their former selves. Hint: Not everyone is in both photos.

Back, left to right: Tom Schatz ’74, Steve Racow ’77 (inset), Dave Neidorf ’77, Marty Ricciardi ’77, Greg Jackson ’75, Howard Speicher ’76 and Alan Dubow ’77.

“Before” Dwellers are, front, left to right: Dan Elman, Barb Levey (friend of the Dwellers), Jeff Celnik, Matthew Hyde.

Reprising dad’s role

Bearcats at the Ducks

Binghamton University alumni and incoming freshmen met at a Long Island Ducks game at the Bethpage Ballpark in Central Islip, N.Y., in early August, one of several Summer Send-off events sponsored by the Alumni Association and the Dean of Students Office.

Golfing for a good cause

Team Blodgett won the Alumni Golf Tournament in August with a score of 54. From left are Andy Hutchings ’05, Thomas Hackett ’08, Jim Blodgett and Ian Bel ’06, MBA ’07. Proceeds from the tournament, played in Vestal, support the Alumni Association’s Legacy Scholarship Fund, which benefits children of Binghamton University alumni.
