    • 1969 | Class Survey

      May 30
      2:30PM – 3:45PM
      Sprague Hall | Room: Concert Hall — 470 College Street

      We open our 50th Reunion with a provocative and insightful discussion of the results of our Class Survey emceed by Tom Guterbock, who created and managed the Class Survey, and Mike Baum – looking beyond the results and focusing on hard questions, such as were we agents of change, or the last hold-outs for old Yale? Did we effect the changes that were happening then, or were we just swept up in larger currents of change? Have we given back enough? Was Yale a unique experience, or just another elite college? What role does spirituality play in our lives today and In what directions have our spiritual yearnings taken us?
