Wroxton Alum Meet to Reminisce

Studying at Wroxton College stays with you for life.

More than 50 Wroxton College alumni, spanning class years from 1968 to 2016, gathered at the Morris County Golf Club to reminisce about their Wroxton experiences and to hear from Dean Nicholas Baldwin about recent goings on at the Abbey.

Atendees bid on all kinds of Wroxton goodies at the live and silent auctions; Joel Linchitz, AA'68, BA'70, recalls his time at Wroxton in spring 1969; Dean Nicholas Baldwin auctions off one of groundskeeper Robert Denton's stunning carvings

For the thousands of students who have studied at Wroxton College, there is an undeniable Dean Baldwin welcomed attendees and introduced a short video of the most recent improvements to Wroxton. He also served as the auctioneer for a live and silent auction, the proceeds of which will help make sure that the Abbey is a part of an FDU education for years to come. Among the prizes up for grabs at this year's auction were a number of carvings by the Abbey's groundskeeper, Robert Denton, a wonderful oil painting of the Abbey, three nights stay in the Abbey's Presidential Suite (the rooms in which Theordore Roosevelt stayed during his visit to the Abbey), tickets to the New Jersey Speakers Series (of which FDU is a sponsor), and the highly coveted recipes for the Wroxton shortbread and chocolate chip cookies.

“Wroxton alumni sure missed out if they didn’t attend," said Katy Campbell, Vice Chair of the Wroxton Advisory Committee. "Wonderful English-inspired food; Wroxton’s famous teatime biscuits; conversation with friends old and new. And, of course, the memorable auctions emceed by Dr. Baldwin. I am glad I flew in ‘just for this.’”
