Thank you to everyone who joined us for Homecoming and Family & Friends Weekend!

More than 900 alumni and parents registered for the first ever Homecoming and Family & Friends Weekend, and with the spectacular weather, we suspect well over 1,000 were in attendance, and everyone seemed happy to be back on campus! Classes ending in "2" and "7" celebrated Reunions over the weekend, and parents and students had the chance to mingle and connect with alumni at a wide range of events.

The 1972 50th Reunion Class made an impressive showing this year. Nearly 100 alumni attended Homecoming and almost 34% of the class made a Reunion gift, winning both the Homecoming attendance award and the Ralph Walter Prize for greatest percentage of giving, presenting the College with a check for more than $740,000.
