Clarkson alumni from far and wide returned to Potsdam in July for Reunion 2019. From the reunion golf classic to the all-class barbecue tent party, attendees reunited with old friends and learned what’s new at their alma mater.  

A highlight: “CU in Space,” the keynote presentation by Clarkson graduates and friends connected to NASA. A standing-room-only crowd heard from Michael Sarafin ’94, NASA Artemis Mission manager; and Nancy Conrad, founder and chair of the Conrad Foundation named in honor of her late husband Charles “Pete” Conrad Jr., commander of Apollo 12 and the third man to walk on the moon. 
The Conrad Foundation and Clarkson are partners in a scholarship program for high school students with a passion for innovation and entrepreneurship.
