What a grand celebration it was! More than 2000 alumni and guests gathered on College Hill for Reunion Weekend as we toasted Hamilton's 200th birthday. The festivities included Bicentennial Colleges, receptions, dinners, musical and sporting events, as well as plenty of opportunities to renew ties with friends.

We hope you enjoyed this once-in-a-lifetime celebration as we look forward with enthusiasm for Hamilton's third century!
