In September Willamette welcomed to campus the Classes of 1958, 1963, 1968, 1973, 1978, 1983, 1988, 1998 and, as always, the Jason Lee Society — those celebrating 50 years or more since graduation.
This year’s festivities were boosted by some special news. Prior to Reunion Weekend, Willamette was named first in the nation for campus sustainability activities by the National Wildlife Federation. The events of this reunion weekend exemplified the University’s commitment to sustainability, the same kind of collective commitment we see every year from our returning classes.
Congratulations to this year’s reunion classes and committees for a job well done. We already look forward to Reunion Weekend 2009, with all the spirit and celebration it entails.
