CommFest reunites alumni for ‘A Starry Night’
Dozens of stars from the entertainment world and as many as 3,000 alumni and friends of the school gathered April 20 and 21, when the School of Communication at Northwestern University hosted CommFest 2018, the school’s most ambitious, high-wattage reunion gathering to date.
The weekend provided a rare opportunity for alumni to rediscover, reengage and reunite with the school they know and love.
CommFest culminated April 21 with “A Starry Night,” a variety show emceed by “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert (’86, honorary degree in ’11), which starred celebrated alumni working in film, television and the stage, performing alongside faculty artists and current students.
