Franklin & Marshall graduates strolled along sun-dappled walkways, marched with their class-year banners raised high under a crystal-blue sky, and shared memories at various corners of campus during the College’s annual Alumni Weekend, held June 7-9.
Classes with graduation years ending in a 4 or a 9 gathered for reunions. One milestone celebrated was the 50th Class Reunion of the Class of 1969. That class graduated just a few weeks before F&M became a coeducational institution; 82 first-year women and 34 women transfers enrolled that autumn.
During the weekend, alumni and their families found plenty of things to do, from a lecture on the construction of the campus between 1853 and 2019 by David Schuyler, the Arthur and Katherine Shadek Professor of Humanities and American Studies, to golf outings, behind-the-scenes tours of the Phillips Museum, dinners and evening socials.
Saturday brought the Nevonian Induction Breakfast; the Reunion Class Parade, which this year began at the Steinman College Center; the Alumni Celebration, when several alumni were honored with awards; and the Alumni Weekend Picnic under blue-and-white tents on Hartman Green.
