Re-engage, relive, reside (and even roast!): Summer Reunion starts Friday

June 8, 2012 at 11:10 pm

It’s finally here, Beloit College’s summer reunion. (Well, almost.)

Beginning Friday, alumni from 1942 to 2012, we be arriving to re-engage with the college and former classmates, relive their experiences, reside in on-campus housing, and even, to roast (and yes, honor) Keefer Professor of Humanities Tom McBride at the all-class celebration on Saturday.

See the full schedule of events here. (Among the Terrarium’s picks for the weekend: A Frisbee Golf Tournament; the return of both “Campbell’s Soup” and “The Dr. T and Paul Show;" the Saturday morning Alumni Assembly and DSC presentations featuring an Alumni Choir; bird-watching at Big Hill Park; and a session on The Beloit Plan and today’s curriculum.) Also notable, the Friday lineup of special “classes.”

From 3-5 p.m. on Friday alumni (and presumably, interested Beloiters across campus) can “Get back to class!” The schedule, included on the, lists the following options and locations:
