A great time had at Reunion 2022!
Thank you to everyone who attended Reunion 2022 on Saturday, June 4!
It was wonderful to see so many alumni and friends "en bleu" and to celebrate our 2022 Reunion classes, including the 50th Anniversary Class of 1972 (pictured), the Golden Alumni Society and the 2022 Alumni Achievement Award Recipients: Father Wayne E. Killian ’73 (posthumous), James Dever Bennett, Esq. ’82, and Edward Gallagher III M’10, Ed.D.
Save the date for Reunion Weekend 2023 (celebrating classes ending in “3” and ‘8”), which will now be held in conjunction with Commencement, on Saturday, May 20.
