We had a wonderful Gratz College Reunion on July 16, 2019 and appreciate all alumni who came out to celebrate!

With alumni from the Class of 1951 to the Class of 2019, there were stories told, memories shared, and bonds renewed. Alumni also had a chance to interact with our president, chair of the board, staff, and current students at Gratz for the annual Summer Institute.  A very special thanks to Jerry Silverman ('87 M.H.L., "80 B.H.L., '63 High School) and Emily Bengels, Ph.D. candidate, for offering their thoughtful reflections on the meaning of their time at Gratz.
