Hosts Paul Nierman (KGSM76) and Debbie Horwitz (GSESP69) show their school spirit at the NU Club of San Diego.

Last June 84 members and friends of the NU Club of Chicago enjoyed the view of Chicago’s skyline at a rooftop party at the Lake Shore Center on the Chicago campus. The following month about 80 members and guests tried their luck at the Arlington Park racetrack, and the club capped off the summer by volunteering at the Greater Chicago Food Depository in late August. Members prepared and packaged food for delivery to needy residents.

The club’s fall calendar of events included a reception and private showing of "Van Gogh and Gauguin: The Studio of the South" at the Art Institute of Chicago; the 15th annual "Spooky Zoo Spectacular: Halloween with a Heart" at the Lincoln Park Zoo; and an open forum on capital punishment. The last event was co-sponsored by the Phi Beta Kappa Association of Chicago, the University of Chicago Alumni Association and the Chicago League of Women Voters.

Club members were on hand to welcome fellow alumni and friends before every home football game at the Wildcat Alley tailgates at Wells Field in Rocky Miller Park.

Members are also marking their calendars for stage performances of Glengarry Glen Ross at the Steppenwolf Theater Jan. 9 and 13 and The Sweet Smell of Success with Brian D’Arcy James (S90) on Jan. 22 at the Schubert Theater.

The Chicago Young Alumni Club gathered at the Southport City Saloon in late August to network and stay current with University news. During homecoming weekend they joined the class of 1996 to take in classic films of that year at the Brew & View at the Vic nightspot in the Lakeview neighborhood.

Among the many new student welcoming parties held around the country was the NU Club of Indianapolis gathering at the home of John and Barbara Smith (SESP55) Wynne. Members greatly enjoyed the October visit of Northwestern professor and Slavic specialist Irwin Weil (see story on page 28), who enhanced their appreciation of the "Gifts to the Tsars 1500–1700: Treasures from the Kremlin," an exhibit at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.

For the third year volunteers from the NU Club of San Diego turned out for June’s Rock ’n’ Roll Marathon to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Societies. Members arose at 3 a.m. to fill 40,000 cups of water for runners and walkers in the event.

Together with the NU Club of the San Francisco Bay Area and other members of the Northwestern community, the San Diegans reveled in the Wildcats’ first victory of the season in Las Vegas in September, holding a cocktail party and raising $1,000 for the Northwestern Athletic Department.

In Florida the NU Club of Sarasota will celebrate the upcoming holidays by welcoming members of Northwestern’s Music Theatre Program to the Sarabay Country Club Dec. 11 for a Broadway and holiday revue. On Feb. 7 the club will hold its first Awards Banquet at the new Radisson Lido Beach Resort and will honor Northwestern athletic director Rick Taylor.
