Beloit, Wis. – When the Class of 2017 arrives on campus this fall, these digital natives will already be well-connected to each other. They are more likely to have borrowed money for college than their Boomer parents were, and while their parents foresee four years of school, the students are pretty sure it will be longer than that. Members of this year’s first year class, most of them born in 1995, will search for the academic majors reported to lead to good-paying jobs, and most of them will take a few courses taught at a distant university by a professor they will never meet.

Whether catching up with pals at Friday night class events, dancing with globes under the Pearsons tent (those dancers will remain nameless...), experiencing the great honor of being 'hooded' at the Golden Hoods Ceremony, parading in the misty rain, swapping stories at C-Haus, eating birthday cake ice cream from Dairyhaus, celebrating with fellow alumni as they receive their DSC award, laughing and cheering with President Bierman at the all-class celebration, enjoying classes with the faculty, hearing about the desegregation of the Greek system with Eric Hetland'12, catching a ride to your dorm on the golf cart, or just plain laying in the grass in Chapin Quad, reunion 2013 was, as one '98 alum put it, "super fun times." Photos are available now on our Beloit College Alumni Affairs Facebook page and will be available on our website soon. Thank you for joining us!
If you missed it, come on back for Homecoming 2013 September 20-22 and mark your calendar for Reunion 2014--June 13-16.
