Alumni Reunite, Reminisce During Reunion 2013
by Kevin A. Brown, Director of Alumni Relations
Over 300 alumni and guests returned to campus June 7 and 8 to celebrate their Reunions, with classmates Madeline (Maddy) Johnson Stein ’68 coming from as far west as Atherton, CA and Kathleen (Kay) York ’68 traveling more than 3500 miles from London, England.
Members of the Classes of 1963 and 1968 gathered with other alumni on Friday for a downtown excursion to the Barnes Museum and, despite some heavy rain, a full weekend of laughter and reminiscing could be heard across the campus long into the night. The Class of 1963 was also the winner of the Cornell Cup for the class with the largest attendance at Reunion with 37 members returning to celebrate 50 years of memories.
We were honored to greet Mary Berlin Benjamin ’43, who proudly carried her class banner from the Wishing Well to the Great Room in the Commons for the Parade of Classes, and we were delighted to welcome more than 100 alumni, families and friends to the young alumni picnic on the Haber Green. The sun shone brightly on Saturday and allowed us to stay outdoors for the dedication ceremony of the Outdoor Café Terrace with members of the Dr. M. Fredric Rieders ‘80 family, Betty Jean and Karl Rieders in attendance. Read more and view video.
