Author: Timothy Ponisciak


Spring is slowly arriving in South Bend, which means that the Alumni Association’s annual Reunion Weekend is coming up soon! Reunion 2013 will take place Thursday May 30, through Sunday, June 2. The event offers activities that will appeal to Domers from any background and age group. There are thought-provoking educational seminars, Notre Dame-focused discussions and fun evening activities planned. Alumni can choose to stay on-campus in a residence hall or off-campus. If you have children, there is childcare available as well!

One event that may be of particular interest to MBA alumni is the seminar on Sustainability in the Wine Making Industry, which will feature MBA Class of 1988 alum, John Bargetto. John will discuss the concept and practice of sustainable winegrowing. He will elaborate on the commitment to sustainability that Bargetto Winery has made starting with its vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains, continuing at the winery, and ending with Bargetto’s production and sales. The event will also include a wine tasting, featuring a selection of Bargetto Wine.

The College of Business also will be hosting an Open House on Friday, May 31, from 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. This event will take place in the brand new Stayer Center! This will be a great opportunity to see the newest building on campus and to learn more about some of the exciting classes and projects that are currently going on at the College.
