Alumni Weekend 2012
“The friends I made at Juniata have been with me all these years. We are better than a family. Attending Juniata is the best thing I ever did for myself,” is what one alum said in response to the most enjoyable part of the weekend. The overwhelming number of smiles and hugs shared by nearly 600 alumni, family, students, staff and friends June 14-17 would suggest that they agree. Highlights included a celebration in honor of our retiring President and administrators, a ceramics reunion, diverse and engaging Alumni College classes, reunion class gatherings, award ceremonies, and picture-perfect weather for the picnic on the lawn. The 50th reunion class of 1962 gave an impressive gift to the College, and the Classes of ’57, '67, '72, '77, '82, '87, '92 and Emeriti also celebrated reunions. Celebrate with us next year at Alumni Weekend 2013, June 6-9.
