The event, honoring work anniversaries of its faculty and staff, took place on June 8 at Nanina’s In The Park in Newark.

To make up for the lost time, it celebrated anniversaries from 2022 as well as from 2020 and 2021 that couldn’t be recognized in their respective years.

The gathering was attended by around 200 employees and their guests, many of whom saw each other for the first time in two years. After catching up at the cocktail hour, the ceremony began with Dean Cecile A. Feldman’s remarks. She thanked all the employees for their continued service and commitment to RSDM. She invited faculty and staff with over 25 years of service to the stage to collect their recognition awards. All employees with work anniversaries of five years and its multiples received a keepsake block with their service years engraved.

The event continued with dinner and dancing, and judging by the dance floor, a great time was had by all.
