Fall Weekend

07/16/2009

Fall Weekend, our annual celebration for alumni, parents and students, is Oct. 23-25. The theme is "Staying Connected," with a special focus on how technology and innovation are changing the way we live, learn and communicate.

The weekend will include all the traditional activities -- Harvestfest, athletic events and an all-campus picnic on Tempel Green -- as well many new events and activities. Highlights of the weekend are:

  • A special series of Saturday Seminars, many of them looking at how to better use, understand and enjoy the opportunities technology provides.
  • "Revolution in the Internet Era," a talk by Fernando Juan Espuelas-Asenjoy '88, named a "Leader for the New Millennium" by Time Magazine.
  • Field hockey and soccer games vs. rival Colby College.
  • A keynote presentation Friday night.
  • A celebration of Unity House's 35th anniversary.
  • Induction of four alumni athletes into the College's Athletic Hall of Fame.
  • A student production of Shakespeare's The Tempest.
