Whether you are able to travel to campus each year, every five years, or maybe only occasionally, we hope you’ll return for Homecoming Weekend 2019. Some recent big changes at the college include the fully remodeled Charles L. Tutt Library — the largest carbon-neutral, net-zero energy academic library in the country; and a new East Campus Housing Community, but there’s much you will remember that has stayed the same. Join us for Homecoming traditions, such as the picnic, Freedom and Authority, the Fifty Year Club Induction Ceremony honoring the Class of 1969, and Homecoming Convocation where alumni award winners will be recognized and President Tiefenthaler will give updates about the college and progress being made through Building on Originality: The Campaign for Colorado College.
Reunion committees are putting together programming that features your fellow alumni and favorite CC faculty. Special programming this year also includes a celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College on Saturday, Oct. 12. If you’re on campus early, the Class of ’69 invites you to join them for “Get Together: 1969 and the Music of the ’60s” with Craig Werner ’74. On Friday, the Class of 1979 is hosting “Mini-Blocks Tiger Talks,” showcasing alumni from their class with “TED Talks” style presentations. More details will be available on the Homecoming website and in the guide this summer.
We’ll end the weekend with our new tradition — the Homecoming Memorial Gathering in Shove Chapel on Sunday morning to remember classmates who are no longer with us.
Mark your calendar for Oct. 10-13, 2019, and plan to be here.
With best wishes,
Kristie Damgaard Assistant Director for On-Campus Programs
