On July 23, 2011, several of the 1981 residents of fifth floor Esch got together to reminisce about their freshman year at IUP. The group met in Pittsburgh and enjoyed an evening on the rivers aboard the Gateway Clipper.
Alumni pictured from left include Tammy Nulph Calderone ‘85 (second), Scott Leya ’85 (fourth), Sally Winiarczyk ‘84 (fifth), Joe Kralik ’87 (eighth), and Linda Hagopian ‘86 (ninth).
The group is planning another reunion during the summer of 2012 at the house of Scott Leya in the South Hills of Pittsburgh. They hope that this reunion will continue to grow in participants.
For additional information regarding the 2012 reunion, those that lived on fifth floor Esch during the 1981–82 school year can contact Joe Kralik at JFKDec7@gmail.com.
