When alumni return to campus this April, they can expect some of the traditional trappings of Reunion (Grand Reunion luncheon, anyone?) as well as some new twists on old favorites (remember photo booths?).
Because the class of 1960 is celebrating its 50th reunion this year, some programs will recognize the unique events of that year. On April 16, attendees will have an opportunity to remember the civil rights movement with dance, remarks and conversation with JoAnne Smart Drane '60 and Ann Dearsley-Vernon '60, '61 MFA. The next day, participants will have a chance to tour the International Civil Rights Museum, located at the site of the historic 1960 Woolworths sit-in.
Other events highlight lifelong learning with UNCG faculty:
And coming back to campus wouldn't be complete without a chance to look at favorite haunts and a few surprises with tours of the Alumni House, Aycock Auditorium, campus secret gardens and general trolley tours.
Above all else, alumni from class years ending in 0s or 5s will have time to relax and enjoy one another's company with lunches and receptions or take in cultural events such as a Margaret Maron '60 reading and the Miles Davis Jazz Festival.
