*Manhattan College is making every effort possible to hold the Dinner safely this summer. The health of our alumni, family and friends is our top priority. We are actively monitoring COVID-19, and CDC and New York City guidelines and regulations. We plan to make a decision about if the date needs to be changed by the end of March. If COVID-19-related circumstances prevent an in-person celebration on the scheduled date, the College will postpone the Dinner to Wednesday, September 8, 2021 at the same venue.
