Alumni Weekend 2013
“You know you had the most wonderful reunion weekend when you pull out of your hotel parking lot and tears roll down your face because you've just seen some of your oldest and dearest friends and feel that strange longing to go back in time. Thank you all for the best weekend I've had in a long time,” is how Lisa (Sieg) Slodov ’88 described her Alumni Weekend. The overwhelming number of smiles and hugs shared by more than 550 alumni, family, students, staff and friends June 6-9 would suggest that they agree.
Highlights included welcoming our new President Jim Troha, diverse and engaging Alumni College classes, reunion class gatherings, award ceremonies, and a lively All Class Dinner and Saturday picnic lunch held under a huge tent on the Quad. The 50th reunion class of 1963 gave a record-breaking gift to the College, and the Classes of ’58, '68, '73, '78, '83, '88, '93 and Emeriti alumni also celebrated reunions. Celebrate with us next year at Alumni Weekend 2014, June 5-8.
Special thanks to all of the reunion volunteers and Juniata staff who gave their time to make Alumni Weekend memorable! And, thanks to everyone who attended the big event. How was your weekend? Let us know by completing the Alumni Weekend Survey.
