We had another great event tonight with our admissions department in Syracuse, N.Y.! A group of about 15 alumni ranging from the class of 1957 to the class of 2010 gathered with a few prospective students and their parents to share stories about Mercyhurst and enjoy delicious BBQ at Dinosaur Bar- B -Que. A member of our alumni board of directors Robert Dubik ’78 and his wife Teresa Dubik ’77 shared stories of their time at Mercyhurst and how they met by chance at a Halloween party (he was a commuter student and she was a resident at the time). Many alumni shared stories of their lives post ‘Hurst, and how excited they were to see all of the growth happening at the university.
We also had the opportunity to stop by Ale ‘n’ Angus Pub in Syracuse, a restaurant owned by alumnus Matthew Beach ’03. We were so happy to be able to catch up with Matt and learn a little bit about the home of one of New York State’s famous burgers.
Tomorrow we are hitting the road once more and making our way up to Boston for another event with alumni and prospective students at Back Bay Social Club. We can’t wait to meet up with alumni in the area.It has been a few years since our last visit, and we’re looking forward to hearing what is new in their lives.
