On May 28, two dozen International Affairs dual major alumni gathered with CIE staff, faculty and special guests for a casual evening at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. IA alumni representing 13 graduation classes from 1988 to 2007 enjoyed a spirited evening conversing with old acquaintances, networking with new ones, and grazing on plentiful finger food.

IA alumni attending were Laura Carpenter ‘07, Eliza Chon ‘05, Elizabeth Condon ‘95, Faith Corneille ‘98, Gretchen Demian Losee ‘04, Diana Duff Rutherford ‘88, Adam Gould ‘07, Sarah Hewitt ‘01, Dan Hilliard ‘88, Maria Knutson Adkins ‘99, Heather Lane Powers ‘95, Bob Leavitt ‘88, Lorien Liptack ‘00, Mike McBride ‘00, Cara Metell ‘02, Sarah Pratt ‘05, John Reed ‘05, Nathan Smith ‘06, Emily Soderman ‘07, Katie Striffolino ‘07, Ingrid Swenson ‘02, Andrew Tarpgaard ‘91, and Wendy Yoder Beach ‘ 94. Four who planned to attend but in the end were unable to join us were Jason Calder ‘92, Kate Dunning Offringa ‘93, Zach Millimet ‘96, and Jonathan Van Arsdell ‘06. We missed you!


A very good time!

“Phenomenal event. I never realized so many IA grads were here in D.C. Thank you for connecting me with old friends!”

More to come

The Washington event was the first in a series of three scheduled in preparation of the IA dual major’s 25th anniversary in 2010. The next event will be held in November in New York City followed by a spring gathering in Boston (stay tuned!).
