“We walked in and just went “ahhhh” everything is here, for
every age. We had to go straight to all of the rides and
can’t wait to get to the food.”
Brenda Sullivan Schilling ’91C, ’93G
“Great idea and it is a lot of fun. I saw Southside Johnny
when he came to campus and performed in Marillac Auditorium quite a
few years ago.”
Patty Sullivan ’79SVC, ’89G, ’96MLS
“I’m glad I’m back. I thought this was a great opportunity
to bring my family down as well, my sister and her kids.
Looking forward to meeting up with old friends.”
Mike Papagianopoulos ’85CBA
“I just graduated a week ago, but being back on campus as an
alum is a complete and different feeling. The excitement,
everyone is connecting, everyone is smiling and that is what I have
to look forward to for the rest of my life, coming back every
summer to St. John’s.
Pedro Gomez ’09TCB
Great weather, great company, unbelievable, on the Great
Lawn. It’s been a long time and it’s my 30th anniversary
class of ’79. It’s terrific, I taught radio announcing here in ’88.
I’m on the Board of the School of Professional Studies with Dr.
McDonald and it’s great to be back here again and it’s amazing how
much the campus has grown.
Larry Dunn ’79SVC
Today is absolutely fantastic, the day is beautiful, the kids
are having the time of their lives and it’s great to show them how
wonderful St. John’s University is. A chance to meet up with
friends who I haven’t seen for some time and it couldn’t be better.
Fantastic idea and just to see Southside Johnny is the icing on the
Elizabeth Geerlings Horan ’93P
The day is excellent, the weather is excellent, everyone is
friendly, it’s fun, the food is excellent. St. John’s has
outdone themselves the children are having a wonderful time and I
can’t wait for the next reunion. Even if it’s not my year I
probably will come. This is a great event and like I said the
weather took it to the top.
Susan Strong ’99MBA
I’m enjoying it very much. I haven’t been here since I
graduated so that’s a long time. I was very pleasantly
surprised with all the changes. They kept up the campus very
beautiful, all the changes are all good changes. I like the
fact that they included the family because it made it a family
event and my children who are now in college were very interested
to see where I went so we took the tour together and they were
asking questions too. So I thought it was very nice with the
C. Scotto ’79C
This is my second alumni event this year and I wish would have
started coming out sooner. I am looking forward to the young
alumni happy hour in Long Island as well as the Long Island Ducks
Andrew Janosick ’02C
Well I work at St. John’s in Student Affairs. Just to
check it out to see friends from my area hoping to see people from
my area. I only graduated a few years ago so we don’t have
that nostalgic feeling as the older people who graduated
before. Having a great time, beautiful day, a lot of people,
nice activities, can’t ask for much more.
Frank Jerome ’06CPS
The chance to see old friends. That’s what I came out to see
check out the new campus. Saw some new construction but altogether
being here at this place brought back a lot of good memories. I
played ball here I had a lot of friends here so I definitely wanted
to come out and show my support for St. John’s. This is my first
reunion event I’ve come back to so it’s nice to see that they’ve
changed this up a little bit and it’s more family friendly. I
think it’s great what they are doing and I hope it continues to
Nygel Roach ’06TCB
I came back because my friends were coming and we’re having a
great time today and we’ll come back next year too.
George Frank ’71Ed
We reconnected. All of us have never been apart form each
other we were in the glee club together and we had a very good
experience at St. John’s University. And we’ll definitely like to
come back again in the future.
Joanne Trimarco ’71Ed
I’ve had the honor and the privilege of reconnecting with my
college friends a few years back and because of them I’m
reconnecting to St. John’s now and it’s wonderful. So thank you so
much for having this. Please have more family get togethers
and I’m sure you’ll more of us come back. And we were in the glee
club We had such a good time all together and it’s just bringing
all these old memories back again and it’s just really nice.
