Weekend Highlights include:
Join Steve Rounds ’65 on Saturday morning as he delivers the Half-Century Annalist Letter at the Annual Meeting of the Alumni Association. Almost every year since 1865, when George Bristol prepared the first letter for the Class of 1815, an annalist has reminisced about classmates, the College and its faculty as they were in his undergraduate days 50 years earlier. In addition, President Stewart will address the assembly, and the Bell Ringer Award will be presented to Carlyle “Connie” Ring ’53.
We will mark the 50th anniversary of the signing of Kirkland College’s charter during an All-Kirkland reunion. Highlights include:
Opening reception in the Kevin and Karen Kennedy Center for Theatre and the Studio Arts to honor the matriculants whose names are listed on the Kirkland Wall
Kirkland Echoes, plays written and directed by alumnae
Readings from Lost Orchard: Prose and Poetry from the Kirkland College Community
Kirkland art show and The Kirkland Pioneers poster display
Events scheduled throughout reunion weekend will celebrate inclusion and diversity as the Hamilton community welcomes our multicultural alumni and their families back to campus. “Coming Together” events give all alumni the chance to be a part of the ongoing conversation about diversity, inclusion and culture on and off campus. In addition, join us in celebrating 15 years of the Posse Scholars Program at Hamilton.

Hamilton reunions traditionally feature “Alumni Colleges” with faculty, administrators and alumni. These highlight the accomplishments of alumni, entertain reunion attendees and provide a rich educational program to balance the social and festive activities of the weekend. Class committees start planning more than a year in advance to ensure a full program. When you arrive on campus, browse the reunion schedule for Alumni Colleges ranging from current issues in health care and finance, the world of diplomacy and landmines, to TED-like talks new this year from the 25th reunion class. Topics include the art of bonsai, pressure cooking and being the first female General Manager in the NBA.
Alumni who belong to a fraternity, sorority or private society are invited to reconnect with fellow members regardless of class year. Meetings are for members and dinners, lectures and house parties hosted by the organizations are open to all alumni.
The mixed-voice Reunion Choir and all-male Baldwin Choir will sing at the Service of Remembrance on Sunday morning. Check the schedule for rehearsal times. All alumni, spouses, children and guests who enjoy singing are invited to participate. No auditions, just good music and great fun.
