Class of 1947 and 1942 – 70th and 75th Reunion

Dear 1947 and 1942 Classmates,

You’re invited to return to the Hill for your 70th and 75th Reunion Celebration, June 2 – 4, 2017, when your classes will gather to connect to one another and our college. We have planned a whole weekend of opportunities – learning seminars, recreation events, class meals and programs, live music, worship services, St. Olaf Reunion Band Concert, and more – which will all serve as the foundation for conversation and reconnection.

Every few years we get to step back into our first home away from home, relive some of the better moments, remember classmates we have lost and enjoy the people and places that helped to shape who we are today. We’ll also get a chance to see the old and the new on campus; amazingly, they’ve changed some things since we’ve been gone!

There are plenty of reasons to attend, but know this: we want to see you there. Whether you’ve been back for every reunion and Christmas Festival or have not yet returned, this milestone event will be an important marker in our lives. Please plan to attend and take part!

Read on to see a schedule of highlights specifically for your class. In addition to these opportunities, the Sneak Peek contains the entire weekend’s schedule.

Um! Yah! Yah!
