Alumni class volunteers aim for the back row with creative programming for Reunions

Even as the ’10s tossed their mortar boards skyward at Commencement last weekend, members of 12 alumni classes had already begun pouring onto campus to celebrate Reunions, June 11 through 21.

Although more than half a century separates the oldest Reunion class (1950) from the youngest (2005), all have the same goal: to return as many alumni as possible to the College on the Hill, gathering with friends old and new in activities planned by class reunion committees and Alumni Relations.

This year’s class reunion committees aimed to draw crowds with creative programming. The Class of 1970 is even getting the band back together—two bands actually, the Night Watchmen and Tracks, both popular student rock ‘n roll groups from the late ’60s and early ’70s—for a 40th reunion performance.
