Come on back!




You don’t need to wait for “your” Reunion year to visit us here on South Mountain. If you’ve been feeling nostalgic for your Lehigh days, why not come back for a visit?

We have some great programs planned for you this Reunion Weekend, no matter what year you graduated. The weekend is May 14-16, less than a month away!

The fun starts Thursday, with the Home Club’s annual golf outing, then continues with a performance by The Kingston Trio, organized by the Class of 1961 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Trio’s first Lehigh concert.

Friday marks the debut of our new Alumni U program—two days of seminars hosted by members of the Lehigh faculty and staff. It’s “education you can use”—from honing your networking skills and getting your children into college, to understanding the economic crisis and improving the environment.

Friday evening, kick back under the big tent and enjoy the camaraderie of ReunionFest, featuring the Alumni Big Band, a great meal, and those world-famous Lehigh desserts!

Saturday morning will mark an important milestone for Lehigh’s Greek community, as we unveil the Greek Heritage Program at the annual alumni meeting. We’ll place plaques on the first five Greek chapter houses on campus, recognizing the history behind the buildings and gratefully acknowledging the contributions of the alumni who lived there. We’ll continue the program, five chapters each year, until each of the houses has received a plaque.

The Reunion Parade winds its way through campus on Saturday afternoon, followed by Class Dinners in the evening—and a Circle of Friends dinner for alumni back between their official Reunion years.

So please join us! This will be my first Reunion in charge of the Alumni Relations program, and I’m looking forward to welcoming you back to South Mountain!

See you in May.

Robert W. Wolfenden
Assistant Vice President for Alumni Relations
