The Barnard Club of Houston, formed five years ago, has kept the Barnard connection alive for alumnae, parents, and prospective students as it provides exciting events for this region. Recent activities have included a reception with Jennifer Fondiller ’88, dean of admissions, and Nanette DiLauro, director of financial aid, and a seminar on personal finance with Manisha Thakor, author of On My Own Two Feet. The latter event also served as the first meeting of a new book club. With slightly under 150 alumnae in the greater Houston area, this club is a wonderful example to other areas in the country where the number of alumnae is relatively small. If you are interested in getting together with Barnard alumnae in your area, or would like to talk about your club, please contact Susannah Goldstein, manager of regional alumnae programs at 212.854.0572 or sgoldstein@barnard.edu.
