Stony Brook Matters has a look at the recent Class of 1973 reunion, which featured a fun weekend filled with music, campus tours, and catching up with old friends.
More than 50 members of the Class of 1973 descended on the Stony Brook University campus for their 50th reunion weekend on June 2 and 3.
The weekend kicked off Friday night with some rock and roll at the Long Island Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame at the Stony Brook Village Center. Alumni were treated to a performance by Albert Bouchard, a founding and former member of the Blue Oyster Cult, and Susie Lorraine, a member of Bouchard’s Imaginos Band. Alumnus Norm Prusslin ’73 led a question and answer session with Bouchard, where they reminisced about when Blue Oyster Cult played at the university, including opening for Jefferson Airplane on the original athletic fields in 1970.
Class members took campus tours to get a look at the Campus Recreation Center, the Staller Center for the Arts, and the Island Federal Credit Union Arena, as well as the Charles B. Wang Center and Frey Hall. A special Class of 1973 50th Reunion Exhibit was featured at the Special Collections and University Archives at Melville Library; alumni were able to peruse artifacts, articles, yearbooks, and other mementos.
The weekend was topped off with one more tradition for classes celebrating their 50th reunion at Stony Brook – a special induction into the Brook Heritage Society.
