Members of classes ending in 3s and 8s gathered June 7–10 for Reunion Weekend, which featured more than 80 events and activities.
Highlights of the weekend included “The Evolution of the Coeducational Experience at Trinity,” celebrating the pioneering Class of 1973, the college’s first fully coeducational class; the granting of an honorary doctor of humane letters degree to former University of Hartford president and 50th Reunion celebrant Walter Harrison ’68; and “A Conversation with the President,” with Harrison interviewing Trinity President Joanne Berger-Sweeney. Attendees also had the opportunity to learn about the results of the recent alumni survey and to tour Trinity’s Crescent Center for Arts and Neuroscience and the college’s new downtown campus at Constitution Plaza.
These events took their place among more traditional activities, including a New England-style clambake, campus tours, story time with the Bantam, tours of the Trinity Chapel and carillon, and the Parade of Classes.
The Alumni Convocation saw the awarding of several prizes, including the Paul E. Raether ’68 Alumni Achievement Award. Director of Alumni Relations Steve Donovan noted that the previously named Alumni Achievement Award was renamed in honor of Raether ’68, H’14, P’93, ’96, ’01 to acknowledge his significant level of engagement, leadership, and support of the college as he celebrated his 50th Reunion.
