Reunion in Pictures

One might have expected that the economy would impact reunion this year, but nobody could tell by looking at the guest list. More than 450 alumni attended Reunion Weekend 2009, and all of the classes that were celebrated — 1959, 1964, 1969, 1974, 1979, 1984, 1989 and 1999 — took part in an expanded schedule with new activities, increased current student involvement and extensive class committee initiatives and planning.

Unusually for Reunion Weekend, there was no home football game this year — but attendees used the time as an opportunity to celebrate alumni vintners at the inaugural Cheers to Willamette event and to view the firstever class art show, courtesy of the Class of 1959.

We are grateful for the good work of each reunion class committee and the many alumni who came back to celebrate with us. You helped make this a very special event.
