I’m Thinking About Doing This…

I just received an alumni e-mail (below) from the university where I received my BA in English, Fairleigh Dickinson – Florham/Madison campus, in Madison NJ. And I’m seriously thinking about doing it. Unlike high school, I loved college. I could have remained there forever if I didn’t have to go out an join the rest of the world.

If I decide on doing it, I’d prefer to do it in my home, where it’s more casual and we can talk. Oddly enough, though I’d talk about publishing and writing, I’d probably spend more time talking about the businesses I’ve owned and sold.

You have a wealth of experiences and advice to offer. Our students want to spend time with you.Dinners for 12 Strangers is a new tradition at FDU – one that connects students and alumni.

During select dates in April, alumni local to our New Jersey campuses will host students in their homes, at restaurants and diners for an evening of good food and conversation.Won’t you consider being one of our alumni hosts?

This is a wonderful and meaningful way to stay connected to the University and meet some great young people. Our students are eager to meet our alumni and we hope that you are eager to meet them.Click here to register as a dinner host and view video of University Trustee Donna DelPrete Marki, BS’82, who shares her impressions of the dinner she hosted last year.

Spend some time in the company of students. Share your life stories. Learn from one another. You’ll never forget it.
