Alumni Weekend

September 16–18, 2011

Can we Beat 675?

Last year’s Alumni Weekend was a whopper. Almost 700 alumni and guests returned to campus for their reunions (the largest attendance on record) to enjoy the sun, the food, the new events and format — and, most of all, each other.

The groups enjoying special recognition and specific reunion activities this year are the classes of 1951, 1956, 1961, 1966, 1971, 1976, 1981, 1986, 1991 and 2011, as well as the Half-Century Plus Club.

However, as usual, alumni from any graduating class are welcome to attend. And trust us: Even if it’s not your reunion year, you’ll stay entertained.

Here are a few reasons why:

  • On Saturday, you can meander with your peers from the family-friendly barbecue on the Quad to the home football game at McCulloch stadium. The sun will shine. Fun will ensue.
  • The classrooms will be open and filled with alumni for mini-classes from current faculty.
  • The weekend will culminate with a party in the big Quad tent, for the adults, featuring all the things that made last year’s version so great — plus some extras we’re cooking up. (Translation, to paraphrase some of our 50th-year alumni: It’ll be long on friends and short on speeches.)

Make those plans to come back to campus Sept. 16–18. It’ll be great to see you.
