Alumni Weekend moves to fall 2012

Two great events are coming together next year: Alumni Weekend and Homecoming! This is an exciting opportunity for our community of alumni, parents of alumni, former faculty-staff, current students, families, and faculty-staff to come together. We will honor the reunion classes ending in 2 and 7 with class parties, present the annual Distinguished Alumni Awards, and celebrate Homecoming athletic events. The specific date for Alumni Weekend will be announced in January 2012. Would you like to be part of reunion planning for your class? If so, contact the alumni office at

Alumni Events

Since reunions for classes cycle every five years, we have increased our outreach to our alumni through our regional associations in Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City. Regional associations are composed of alumni, former faculty-staff, and other friends of Catlin Gabel in a given geographic area. These associations facilitate new and continuing connections for their members with the school and with each other through social, cultural, and educational events, community service projects, and networking opportunities. Alumni in specific areas welcome new alumni and help organize Catlin Gabel events. This fall we gathered alumni in Portland, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, and have plans for more events in those areas as well as Seattle. Stay connected on alumni events in your area at We can’t wait to see you!

Alumni Board 2011–12

Our alumni board is enthusiastic and focused on continued outreach to our alumni. Susie Greenebaum ’05, who served as secretary of the alumni board for the past year, has been elected to serve as president. A lifer, Susie attended Connecticut College, graduated from the University of Oregon, and now lives in Portland. A great big thank you to Markus Hutchins ’02, who served as president last year. Markus is based in New York City and will remain a member of the alumni board as the regional alumni association chair. Sarah Lowenstein ’11 also joined the alumni board in July. She is a freshman at Lewis & Clark College and will participate in young alumni outreach. The alumni survey launched in September, and we are poring over the results. Thank you for participating and helping us improve the ways we communicate and the services we provide our alumni. We plan to share the results of the survey in the next Caller. Hope to see you on campus or at one of our regional events soon!
