A Hamilton reunion tradition, Alumni Colleges highlight the accomplishments of graduates and provide a rich educational program to balance the social activities of the weekend. Alumni Colleges topics range from current issues in politics, leadership and entrepreneurship, to making movies, writing and short “TED-like” talks.
All singers from "the Kolb years" are invited to Choir Reunion in celebration of G. Roberts Kolb's more than 35 years as Hamilton's choral director. The Friday night choir dinner will celebrate his many accomplishments, dedication and service. Come prepared to share choir tour stories, and offer toast (and roasts) to Rob! In addition, the mixed-voice Reunion Choir, under Professor Kolb's direction, and all-male Baldwin Choir, under the direction of R. Douglas Sheldon ’63, will sing at Sunday morning’s Service of Remembrance. Check the online schedule for rehearsal times. All who enjoy singing are invited to participate.
Alumni who belong to a fraternity, sorority or private society are invited to reconnect with fellow members regardless of class year. Meetings are open to members, while lectures, Friday night dinners and houseparties hosted by the organizations are open to all alumni.
Childcare will be provided on Saturday for younger children, and those 6 and older may attend the free Friday and Saturday “Reunions Kids Camp” that includes family-friendly movies and a Saturday-night pizza party.
Regardless of class year, alumni who majored or took classes in comparative literature at Hamilton and literature at Kirkland are invited to reunion weekend. A full schedule of activities includes a keynote talk by Mary Bonauto, Friday night celebration dinner, class with professors Nancy and Peter Rabinowitz, alumni panels and performances, and a traditional Strawberries and Champagne reception.
