Book your group rate for New Trier Class of 1973 Reunion Block

*Please note that this reunion is organized by New Trier East alumni but is aimed at anyone who lived in the New Trier district, whether they attended East or West, or a private or parochial school, and graduated or would have graduated in 1973 or thereabouts, regardless of whether they left the district before then. This is a "big tent" reunion, with mini-reunions and other events aimed at gathering friends together, remembering that several villages in the district were split by the artificial "rivalry line" sending neighbors and friends to different New Trier campuses.





We have received numerous e-mails, all of which express the same sentiment:


Let us repeat that:


All of the messages say that whatever amount is fixed as the per-person contribution to the reunion, we must take steps to ensure that no one misses the event as a result of concerns about cost.

Anyone who needs a waiver of the admission fee may obtain such a waiver -- no questions asked -- at any time by sending an e-mail to containing the word “WAIVER” in the subject line, and nothing else – except the name of the attendee(s) requesting the waiver.

Our treasurer will be the only person who will receive any such e-mails, and will treat all of them as strictly and utterly confidential.

We thought this might be a good way of addressing the kindhearted and noble sentiments expressed by numerous classmates.


If you are a New Trier West grad, you are welcome to attend the reunion contemplated by this website In September 2023. Be aware that there is a separate NTW-only reunion planned for August, with its own website:

To avoid confusion and duplication among this site and the NTW-only site, we removed the names of NTW grads who appear on the NTW site from the unclaimed profiles in this site. If you are a NTW grad and would like your profile to be included here, as distinct from the NTW-only site, just drop the undersigned an email and we will happily add you.




If you have not yet joined the site, and are trying to join, you do NOT need to email me to get a password.  Each user sets his(her) own password upon first joining the site.  Here is how the process works.  Basically, you set your own password, the first time you log in:

At the home page, since you do not have an existing account, you should click on "JOIN HERE" where it says:

Not a member?

Then you will see a screen where you will find and click on YOUR name.  (You can search for your name by inserting your surname in the search box provided.)

After you have clicked on your name, you will be able to update your details.  This is where you fill in a blank with the password you choose.  Unfortunately, you only enter the password once, without any second-entry verification, so be careful, and make a note of what you enter, because you will need the password the next time you log in, and each time thereafter.

After you complete the details,  update your Profile.  Just follow the prompts.

If thereafter you FORGET your password, just click on the "forgot my password" link and instructions on how to re-set your password will be sent to your email address.

The bottom line is that to ensure privacy and security each user is uniquely involved in setting and changing his(her) password, and I am NOT involved -- except in extreme cases.  (An "extreme case" is when someone just can't get logged in for love or money.  If that happens to you, just send me an email at


One other thing:  The site does not seem to play well with Google Chrome for some reason.  If that is your browser, try using Firefox to access the site.  That seems to help some people.

Any snags please let us know.

This site has been established as a permanent social-networking facilitator for the New Trier Class of 1973 and friends. It is NOT going dark now or at any foreseeable time in the future. This site will be available indefinitely, as a resource to facilitate the organization of FUTURE events, including reunions. We also have a Facebook group to help folks communicate.

Please reach out to Classmates listed in the "Missing Classmates" section herein and refer them to this site,  If you want to search for that long-lost friend use their full name from the applicable Graduation Program and try,, or  They're free. What purports to be a complete list of every student who ever participated in the Center for Self-Directed Learning can be seen HERE.

Official Programs from the NTW and NTE '73 Graduation Ceremonies are now online and can be viewed HERE
