Reunion Weekend 2011
More than 1,300 friends, former classmates and their families spent time exploring campus and catching up during Reunion Weekend 2011. From an evening at the Boston Pops to dorm room accommodations to unforgettable class parties, the weekend left an indelible mark on all who attended. In turn, alumni from our 20 reunion classes and the Blue and Gold Society left their mark on campus by generously donating more than $1.8 million to enhance the experience of today's Bentley students.

Reunion Weekend 2011
President Gloria Cordes Larson headed to the Sunshine State in March for annual gatherings of alumni, parents and friends. Accompanied by University Advancement colleagues John Mosser, Jack Pini ’75 and Leigh Gaspar, Larson made stops in Miami, Naples, Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. The travelers met many loyal members of the extended Bentley community and shared news of successful initiatives taking place on campus.
Gallivanting Around Gotham
Bentley’s Success in the City program sent a new group of students to Manhattan in January to explore the business world beyond campus walls. Alumni hosts put out the welcome mat at several top companies, including Armani Exchange, Barclays, Digitas and RBC. To wrap up the day, students mixed and mingled with local alumni during a networking event at Heartland Brewery.
Annual Alpine Adventure
Slopes and Smiles
The fluffy white stuff reigned supreme during the weekend of January 28 to 30, as upward of 100 graduates and guests arrived in Killington, Vt., for the Bentley Young Alumni Association’s 11th annual ski outing. In addition to maneuvering over moguls, guests attended an après-ski event sponsored by Jared Anista ’02, founder of the New England Ski Networking Association. The fun continued on Saturday night, with a sold-out Snoop Dogg concert at the Pickle Barrel Nightclub.
A Weekend to Remember
More than 550 alumni and their guests returned to campus in June for Reunion Weekend 2012. Mother Nature could not put a damper on this parade, as participants braved the rain, enjoyed an outstanding picnic and rally, and danced the night away at the always-festive class parties.
Celebrating the Gift of Education
The international speakers who visit Bentley each year do more than bridge countries and cultures. They share direct knowledge of people and events that many of us have only read about, while also serving to inspire. Here are some of those who bridged, shared and inspired on campus this past fall. All were sponsored by the Valente Center for Arts and Sciences.
Falcons of a Feather Ski Together
During the weekend of January 25 to 27, Bentley alumni and guests took their skis, boards, gloves and goggles to Killington, Vt., to reconnect during the 13th annual Young Alumni Ski Trip. In addition to enjoying great conditions on the slopes, attendees gathered throughout the weekend for dinner, drinks and lots of laughs. The trip remains at the pinnacle of mid-winter getaways.
