We hope you will join us on campus the weekend of May 26-28, for the Class of 73’s 50th Reunion!
We’re so excited to see you and celebrate our 50th together! Reunion officially begins at 1 pm on Friday, May 26. Everyone will need to pick up registration material and nametags in Shafer, whether you are staying in Shafer or not. Be sure to say hello to the Welcome Committee organized by Jane Risser as well as your reunion co-chairs!
You’ll get a booklet with reunion events in your registration packet. Check here for the latest schedule: https://alum.wellesley.edu/reunion/schedule-of-events/soe. And here for general questions about reunion: https://alum.wellesley.edu/reunion/faq.
We want to highlight some specific ’73 events. Our class headquarters is Shafer. There are 100 beds in Shafer and they are all full! The alumnae association will assign rooms and you’ll find out your room assignment when you get your registration packet. Be sure to pick up your pre-paid insignia.
Dinners and lunches all require pre-registration. Wine, beer, and soft drinks will flow freely at our dinners—but after dinner socials back at Shafer will be alcohol free due to new restrictions by the Alumnae Association.
