Slideshow: Reunion Weekend 2012

  • 0

The Franklin & Marshall campus was abuzz June 1-3 as the College welcomed an estimated 1,200 alumni and guests to Reunion Weekend 2012. F&M alumni from class years ending in “2” and “7” returned to campus to attend dinners, presentations and special events as they reconnected with classmates and learned about current events at their alma mater.

A slideshow of images captures some of the highlights of Reunion Weekend, including the Reunion Class Parade, Party on the Green, alumni presentations and class dinners. Hundreds of other images are available in the Reunion Weekend gallery on Flickr. Additional coverage of Reunion Weekend appeared in a June 3 story on F&M News.
