“A doctor, a lawyer, and an artist walk into a party and strike up a conversation. …” The beginning of a groan-inducing joke? Hardly! It’s the beginning of a Sarah Lawrence gathering—Reunion 2019. We interrupted a few partygoers just long enough to ask: What’s your favorite thing to do when you connect with SLC friends?
