MCC – Class of ’81 Reunion
Message from Murali, a passionate alumnus and organizer of the reunion
This year marks the Silver Jubilee of the graduating Class of 81 of the prestigious Madras Christian College. A ReUnion has been planned on the August 13th and 14th at Chennai and participation has been confirmed from around the globe. The theme would be “Celebrating 25 years of Nostalgia and Fellowship” and the two days would provide an opportunity for ’81 Alumni to get reacquainted with former classmates and families to reminisce on old times.
Madras Christian College, established by John Anderson, a Scottish missionary in 1837, is one of the oldest and finest colleges of the Indian sub-continent. Started as a small school in Georgetown, (then) Madras, it has since grown into an institution par excellence, with sixteen academic departments offering under-graduate, graduate and even research degrees.
Affiliated to the University of Madras, it was one of the first colleges in the country to receive autonomy. Since 1937, the college functions from an amazingly beautiful campus at Tambaram, near Chennai. Its 375 acre campus, famous for its deer and trees, has a lake, which is an angler’s paradise. The residential system on campus is that of semi-autonomous halls, where the staff and an international community of students live in close fellowship. The uniqueness of MCC has produced such people of outstanding ability, commitment and integrity that the people of the land even today refer to its students as the Gentlemen and Ladies of MCC!
An exclusive website has been created at http://classof81mcc.com. The success of the ReUnion lies in the Quantity of folks from our batch who will be THERE pulling each other’s legs and talking about the good ‘ol times. The Class of 81 requests folks reading this post to take a look at the Class List online. If you know the contact details of someone or someone who knows someone who is not yet in the network, pass the word along or send us the details to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will reach across. Thank you.
