Thank you to everyone who came out to Alumni and Family Weekend 2019! We hope you had as much fun as we did meeting new faces as well as revisiting some familiar ones here on campus!
Let’s do a quick recap of the eventful weekend…
On Friday afternoon, through the generous support of our professors, we were able to rekindle our love for the Core through open classes; open up our minds to varying opinions on the upcoming election through the American Public Philosophy Institute (APPI) Seminar; and spend time with professors during the Alumni/Professor Cap Bar Reunion. We then celebrated our Golden Crusaders during the evening, starting with a 5 p.m. Mass followed by a special dinner for the golden Class of 1969 (and all of their predecessors), as well as the Welcome Dinner on the Mall for all attendees. Our busy day closed with studios, demos, a Due Santi wine tasting, and Music on the Mall.
Day two was equally packed with a schedule that included EnCore lectures, the cross-country 5K, exhibits with old yearbooks from the Archives, an informational session on UD’s upcoming Russia trip, and a session on stories of and by UD legends led by Professors Emeriti of Drama Pat and Judy Kelly. The afternoon continued with the alumni vs. student rugby game, the Student Career Networking Ice Cream Social with Alumni, a Mass celebrating married couples, and, finally, our class reunions!
We hope you enjoyed your time on campus reliving old memories and making new ones! We look forward to seeing you again during our next Alumni and Family Weekend (October 16-18, 2020).
Love Ye UD!
