Merrimack College alumni celebrated a successful Reunion Weekend, as the College welcomed over 500 alumni and friends back to campus for a weekend full of exciting events and activities to re-connect with classmates and celebrate the future of Merrimack College.
The weekend kicked off with the Warrior Welcome Party, an event that has become an annual tradition, open to all Merrimack College alumni. Alumni enjoyed the beer garden style ambiance and international cuisine stations at the recently renovated Merrimack Athletics Complex, taking in the jazzy sounds of Liquid Audio while viewing a vibrant fireworks display.
Saturday morning provided an opportunity for guests to take a tour of a local winery or the option to stay on campus and enjoy the afternoon sunshine at the cookout (a favorite family-friendly event!) Alumni spanning the generations and future Warriors alike enjoyed the outdoor picnic, ice cream novelties, and lawn games. Alumni who graduated between 1951 and 1963 gathered for an afternoon campus trolley tour and Golden Graduate Luncheon, reuniting to reminisce about their favorite Merrimack memories while taking in Merrimack’s newest additions to the campus. In addition, members of the Class of 1964, the 50th Reunion class, were later inducted into the Golden Graduate Society during a special Mass service in Cascia Hall and afterwards enjoyed a special class dinner.
Alumni in milestone Reunion years celebrated Saturday evening on campus at the Class Dinners and Party On celebration, enjoying the whimsical summer evening themed décor and the opportunity to re-connect with classmates. After dinner, guests danced the night away, keeping the dance floor full all evening to the greatest hits of the 70s, 80s, 90s, and 2000s. We thank all alumni, friends, and guests who joined us for Reunion Weekend 2014 and hope to see you at next year’s Warrior Welcome Party on June 5, 2015!
