Alumni Weekend, 2008, is now one for the history books, and appropriately, it was a historic weekend. More than 700 attendees participated in the weekend’s activities, and were not dissuaded by storms Friday evening or a rainy start to the day on Saturday. At a glance, here are just some of the events that helped make this an extraordinary weekend.
Friday night scores turned out for the Jane Preston Rose Roast, which proved to be hilarious and memorable.
Saturday morning started with the Hiram Hustle around the 3-Mile-Square, and the Around the World Breakfast in Dix Dining Hall. The Bread & Soup Luncheon was popular, and John Lauder spoke to a standing-room-only crowd. Dozens ventured onto the Cuyahoga River for a Canoe Trip, and nearly everyone thronged to the Campus Green Saturday evening for the All-Alumni Reception and Awards Ceremony, followed by the respective Reunion Dinners.
Sunday morning, the All-Alumni Brunch enticed a steady stream of hungry folks into Dix Dining Hall to fuel up before closing our their memorable weekend.
