REUNION 2019: Over a beautiful weekend, with more than 1,000 alumni in attendance as well as hundreds of family, friends and children, the campus buzzed with activity for Reunion. Alumni from 25 states and Washington, D.C. traveled for the three-day event. See highlights from the weekend.
SIXTIES SPIRIT: At Reunion, 53 members of the Class of 1969 were inducted into the Pillar Society marking the 50th anniversary of their graduation. As speaker Judith McDowell noted, hers was the first class of women accepted as campus residents. In her speech, scientist and environmentalist McDowell reflected on the spirit of the sixties, women in science and threats to nature. Read her advice in full.
PRESIDENT'S DINNER: At the 59th annual President’s Dinner on Thursday night, Rev. John Denning presented trustee Robert Rivers ’86 with the President’s Award for Excellence. Fr. Denning hailed Rivers, the President of Eastern Bank, as a business and civic leader who gives unselfishly of himself across a spectrum of issues from social justice to sustainability. Proceeds from the event, which raised over $130,000, will support scholarships and other College initiatives. Take a look at the evening.
AIMING HIGH: Upon being honored, Rivers recalled a senior year class assignment from Professor Bill Burke that taught him a lesson about always aiming high. He had to craft a business plan for life after college, outline the goal and show how to achieve it. For Rivers, that assignment led to his role today as successful business and civic leader. Learn more about his story.
LAUNDRY LEADERSHIP: To close out the academic year, CSC ServiceWorks, our on campus laundry provider, recognized the College for our commitment to sustainability. We have offset the 368,376 pounds-per-year of carbon emissions generated by our washers and dryers through their sustainable energy program, which supports an equivalent amount of renewable energy to ensure the College stays 'carbon neutral'.
