About this time next month, the campus will be full of its spring finery and welcoming Reunioners.
Mary Wolf Sutton '59, D'Ann Welch Hanna '59, Nancy Jones Allen '59 (in the purple jacket) and Sue Dudley Weant '59 share a laugh in Taylor Garden during last year's Reunion.
Old friends will greet one another with hugs and tales of what they've been up to over the years. They will tour campus with an eye toward how much has changed and yet how much has remained the same. And they will sing the old songs, make new friends and leave with renewed love for Woman's College/UNCG.
Even better, they will have a chance to feel like a student again with classes taught by current UNCG faculty and staff. Some of the offerings include:
There will be unforgettable music with the Miles Davis Jazz Festival and a fiction reading by best-selling author Margaret Maron '60.
Finally, it wouldn't be Reunion without honoring the 50th Reunion class the Class of 1960. This year, in addition to the Grand Reunion Luncheon, attendees will have a chance to recognize the events of that pivotal year with a special program, Marking a Movement. The event is billed as a collage of expression and includes a dance choreographed by Duane Cyrus, assistant professor of dance, and remarks by Dr. Tara Green, director and associate professor of the African American Studies Program. The program will conclude with a panel discussion with alumnae JoAnne Smart Drane '60 and Ann Dearsley-Vernon '60, '61 MFA.
