CIW alumni celebrate community's 40th anniversary

By Kathleen Rubino '13

On the afternoon of Saturday, Oct. 14, the check-in table at the College-in-the-Woods Dining Hall was flooded with CIW alumni and guests. Hugs and greetings filled the room as alumni caught up with friends to celebrate their living community's 40th anniversary.

"Maybe that's the reason we come back, to re-experience old memories," said Bill Groner '77, who spoke at the event. "The rain, friends, relationships, freedom."

Jessica Iankowitz, a junior majoring in human capital relations, said she enjoyed seeing the CIW alumni pride.

The alumni and guests enjoyed a breakfast buffet while a slide show displayed more than 3,000 CIW photos in the background.

Faculty Master Anthony Preus gave a brief CIW update, then introduced the "heart and soul of CIW," Fran Hornick, a retired office administrative assistant.

"It's so good to see all of you, from the '70s to the 2000s," Hornick said. "I love all of you."

"I think we come back for more than memories, we come back for that connection," he said. "Things change but the one thing that is stable in this crazy world is Binghamton University and CIW. They're always going to be here and I'm always going to come back."
