This summer over a hundred alumni will return to Berlin and reunite with former classmates and professors during ECLA’s first-ever Alumni Reunion, scheduled to take place June 29 – July 2, 2006. At the opening dinner on Friday, President Laurent Boetsch and Provost Emeritus Richard Shriver expect to welcome alumni and professors from every Summer and full-year programme between 2000 and 2005.
Dr. John McLaughlin has been invited to address participants at a festive dinner on Saturday evening. McLaughlin is the creator, executive producer, and host of the popular public affairs program, The McLaughlin Group. The highly-rated American show also airs internationally on CNBC-Europe. McLaughlin’s sense of humor and extensive background in international journalism lends to the success of the show; these same qualities also promise for an engaging talk at reunion.
Alumni will have the opportunity to attend special seminars and a variety of social events during the three-day weekend, however, the programme remains flexible in order to allow as much time as possible for reacquainting with old friends.
