Alumni Gatherings to Learn and Connect

We look for any opportunity to bring the NBS Alumni community together in meaningful ways. Whether to spend time together, meet alumni from across the decades or to hear from speakers and panels about relevant topics, we do what we can to connect you with each other and with a world of learning and ideas!

“It was very meaningful to reconnect with dear friends, and it was especially exciting to meet and hear from some of the current students. Thank you for organizing such a fantastic event and bringing all generations together to celebrate our shared connections.”

Here’s more from what our community of Alumni have shared about past events:

  • “The panels were very well conceived and each speaker was excellent. Their voices spoke so strongly to the quality of a NBS education. The love of dance which contributed to close friendships and community really stood out.” 

  • “I would just like to thank the thought and effort behind this event. As an alumni living in Europe it has been difficult for me to attend the last in-person meetings. This event was a generous gesture from your side to include everyone, near and far, who after all these years still feel a strong affection towards the people and values learned at the school. Thank you!”

  • “It was very meaningful to hear reflections from across many generations of individuals impacted by NBS. The event was strangely more intimate at a distance, than what I imagine would have occurred if we were all together in an event space.”

With Alumni spread out across the globe, we know you can’t always make it to in-person events, so we try to put together a mix of both virtual and in-person gatherings. Stay tuned for information on upcoming events and opportunities to engage with NBS.
