International Festival 2017

The International Festival is easily the tastiest MacDuffie tradition.  Each year, our international students come together to make and share food from their culture, and the result is a panorama of flavors, languages, and colors. China, Turkey, Korea, and Russia were just a few of the nations represented…and the photos don’t do it justice. The best way to experience International Festival is through your palate.

 

Reunion Weekend 2017

Good food, good conversation, sharing fond memories…sounds like Reunion Weekend!

On Friday, we welcomed Marisa Maleck ’03 and presented her with the Distinguished Alumni Award at an afternoon Assembly. Marisa is an attorney who, among other achievements, has served as Clerk of Courts for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and worked on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Her speech to the student body was a contemplation of the CIRCLE values and how they have influenced her life.

On Saturday evening, we held a wine and beer reception, complete with displays of old yearbooks and other MacDuffie memorabilia unearthed in our History Project. Following the reception we enjoyed an elegant dinner provided by SAGE Dining Services. At dinner, our Volunteer Award was presented to Carol-Ann Boardway Chapin and Michael Chapin for their MacDuffie community efforts.

Congratulations to our award recipients, and thank you to all who attended the events. We look forward to next time!
