At exhibition hall Basel – June 16, 2016
We already had a very busy first half of a year. Now summer is here, and the kids are in their holidays. Some of you will travel, others have just started to travel, and some of you stay, where they are. With the raising heat, the movement and business starts to slow down. This gives me some time to reflect on the first of this year’s months.
First, on March 17, 2016, we had our Spring Happy Hour at the Brasserie Volkshaus in Basel. A few of the alumni came together for a drink, and someone kept ordering those spicy appetizers, which got eaten up right at arrival. It was nice to connect again, and to look forward to the events, we have planned for 2016.
In April we wanted to give you the chance to see a lecture by Johanna Fassl on war photography. She was excited to come to Basel for this, and we were excited to have her here. But, we didn’t want her to come, in order to talk in front of just a few. So we made a questionnaire, which had unfortunately only a very sparse response. We got frightened, that there was no interest among our alumni, and so we canceled the event. It would be interesting to hear your opinion, why there was so little interest.
At April 26, 2016, Eva Krug from the Basel chapter of the MIT Club of Switzerland, organized this year’s Ivy League Gathering with a bowling night in Gundeldingen. She was very successful in bringing together alumni from the different schools, and so we played each two rounds of bowling. It was a lot of fun, and gave enough opportunities to mingle and talk.
