A Gathering Of Camels: Reunion 2014

1,000 members of the Camel family came home to the Connecticut College campus last weekend. You’ve got no idea how far these Camels traveled!

1. The joy of Reunion: hundreds of hugs

3. Lobsters and chowder, a Reunion tradition

5. Selfies were snapped

6. And there were “Happy” moments!

President Bergeron reprised her famous surprise performance of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” for the 50th Reunion Class.

7. By the end of Friday, classmates were arm-in-arm

9. The only thing that could make this better…

11. These ladies stole the show!

Dedication personified: Merion Joey Ferris Ritter, Class of 1935, celebrated her 79th Reunion, and Gladys Russell Munroe, Class of 1934, celebrated her 80th Reunion.

12. Graduation was five years ago?!

Over 100 members of the Class of 2009 came back to celebrate their 5th Reunion (but most were still in bed for the parade).

13. Still learning: Alums investigate bioluminescence

Marc Zimmer, Tempel Professor of Chemistry, kept alumni on their toes with a conversation on how bioluminescence can be used to further illuminate important facets of common diseases.

In the beautiful new Hillel House, Larry Vogel, professor of philosophy, shared thoughts about Judaism (as a religion), Jewishness (or Jewish identity) and philosophy.

16. Early exposure: You’re never too young to be a Camel

Never a dull moment: Clowns, games and a workshop with Associate Professor of Art Greg Bailey kept families busy.

17. Kicking back and taking a break

19. The sun was shining and games were everywhere

20. As alums headed to dinners and parties, the sun set on a wonderful weekend

21. Welcome home, Camels. Come back soon.
