We have been soliciting help from alumni on dealing with technical coding issues, as well as someone willing to take over Webmaster duties, for over a year. Since no one is willing to take on these responsibilities the Connections web site will be removed from the internet on September 22, 2021. Two sections (Reunions and In Memoriam) will be migrated to e-Citadel.com to create a "Skinny" version.
Any items you want saved must be downloaded to your personal device before that date.
Do we have a FUTURE?

Until someone with technical coding skills steps forward to update and secure our Registry Search app we can no longer offer it. Therefore, we can no longer continue to maintain a database with multiple points of contact for faculty and alumni.
For over 22 years, Ankara alumni web sites, have offered a way for anyone who has lived the "Ankara Experience" to connect with people who "get it" even if they existed outside of your class year. We helped you do it online and at multiple Ankara Reunions; micro, mini and major.
If we lose the ability to maintain a real time database of alumni and faculty from all decades, we lose our ability to stay connected on a level that commercial web sites can't provide. These are relationships that only Brats and Third World Culture kids can appreciate.
