A soggy spring gave way to beautiful weather as more than 1,000 alumnae and alumni representing 54 classes and nine decades returned to campus for Reunion in June. Classmates took part in cherished Reunion traditions, including the parade on Pulteney Street, the Reunion Forum and fireworks over the Quad. The Classes of 1969, celebrating their 50th Reunion, were awarded the Founder's Cup for having the highest percentage of donors. Interim President Patrick A. McGuire L.H.D. '12 introduced then President-Elect Joyce P. Jacobsen at the Saturday luncheon. "I anticipate that by the end of this weekend, you will be steeped in old memories of faculty and classes, competitions won and lost, young love and, of course, The Oaks," she said to the crowd gathered under the tent. "But I also anticipate that you will leave your alma maters with tremendous and vibrant hope for our future."
