After attending Reunions in June, Fritz Baldauf says he's eager to visit campus again. He had a great time participating in social and sports activities; hitting the pool in Alumni Gym; and gathering with new friends for chicken nuggets and a screening of Kung Fu Panda.

Fritz is seven. He and his younger sister, Liesl, attended spring Reunions with their parents, Marian Zischke Baldauf '84 and Hans Baldauf, who saw the Reunion Kids Programs as one of many appealing reasons to come to Hanover for Marian's 25th Reunion. Other alumni in the 12 Reunion classes also found the kids programs a draw: this year, in addition to attendance records set by several classes, participation in the kids programs soared to a record 947 children—almost equal the number of students in an entire undergraduate class.
