More than 500 alumni, parents, family and friends of the College made the journey back to Juniata for Alumni Weekend 2008, June 5-8. Despite extremely hot weather, alumni still enjoyed such activities as the annual golf outing, campus tours, peace chapel walks, and a picnic lunch relocated to Baker Refectory.
The classes of ’58, ’63, ’68, ’73, ’78, ’83, ’88, ’93 and Emeriti (1957 and lower) celebrated reunions. There were also many non-reunion alumni on campus. The Class of 1958 continued to build on the success of recent 50th reunion classes with more than 55 members in attendance and having raised more than $251,000 for the new Founders Hall History Room and 58th step in the bell tower.
Festivities of the weekend included the Alumni College; Friday’s All-Class Dinner during which President Thomas R. Kepple, Jr. delivered a special message to the Class of 1958; individual class reunion dinners on Saturday; a special concert given by The Chillers, a classic rock band featuring Michael Hars ’78; and the Alumni Awards Assembly recognizing reunion classes and honoring five alumni for their service and achievements (Carol McFate ’57 - Alumni Achievement Award, Charles Goodale ’39 - Harold B. Brumbaugh ’33 Alumni Service Award, Nicholas Bower ’00 - Young Alumni Achievement Award, David Orth-Moore ’85 - William E. Swigart, Jr. ’37 Humanitarian Award and Thomas Terndrup ’77 – Health Professions Alumni Appreciation Award).
