Reunion, 2014: Eric White '74 and John Zamoiski '74 hosted a brunch for their class to celebrate their 40th reunion in May. The brunch was held on the Hillel House terrace, named for White and Zamoiski and honoring their fathers, also alumni of W&L. It featured delicious lox and bagels from Russ and Daughters, our favorite shop in NY for smoked fish. Pictured are Sammy Rosier '14, president of Hillel, White, Zamoiski, and Joan Robins, interim director of Hillel.
