More than 1,200 alumni, family, and friends returned to Hamilton to reconnect with old friends, make new memories and “Party On” at Reunions ’23 on June 8 to 11. Of special note, this year marked the largest Hamilton 50th Reunion class with 82 registered. Beloved traditions mixed with new events to fill the weekend with something for everyone:

The 2023 Bell Ringer

Trustee A.G. Lafley ’69

“It surprised no one that you — a former president, CEO, and chairman of the world’s largest consumer packaged goods company — were remarkably on brand when you spoke at Hamilton’s commencement in 2012. ‘Choose to Know Thyself,’ you told the graduates that morning.”

Half-Century Annalist Letters

“We soon discovered that the insistence on effective written and oral expression extended well beyond the English Department; it was a campus-wide conspiracy. Other professors who had no business worrying about sentence structure and semicolons got into the act of correcting our mistakes. Eventually, however, we understood that writing was not our fundamental challenge; it was thinking. Because to write or speak clearly, you had to think clearly. And that is what our teachers taught us to do.”
Class of 1973 Annalist Letter (written by Roy Schecter ’73)

“Our personalized education was indeed ‘a sign of the times,’ those turbulent, disturbing, but ultimately inspiring and reinforcing times. We arrived at Kirkland as optimistic, curious, and idealistic students. We left as more mature and courageous risk-takers, determined to make a positive difference in the world.”
Kirkland Half-Century Annalist Letter
