  Reunion 2013!

—by Marianne Amoss ’04

In late September, hundreds of Notre Dame graduates and their families and friends returned to campus for Reunion 2013. Many drove onto campus via the new North Charles Street entrance and were warmly greeted by the enormous “Welcome Alums!” banner mounted on Gibbons Hall.

It set the tone for a festive and nostalgic weekend, where alums rekindled friendships and celebrated community at a variety of events and activities—from the Maryland Crab Feast and the Faculty Happy Hour to the Alumnae vs. Students Soccer Game and Classes without Quizzes.

Reunion 2013!The Class of 1963 celebrated their 50th Reunion, and it was a joyful and poignant experience. After their Friday luncheon on campus, each member of the class stood and shared her life story over the last 50 years, relating professional and personal triumphs and challenges. “I found it remarkable that we ‘pre-Women’s Liberation’ women had achieved so much, both personally (family) and career[-wise],” said Carole Michalski Beyer ’63. The next morning, each member of the class received a gold pin from President Joan Develin Coley, engraved with “College of Notre Dame” on the front and her initials on the back—a special honor reserved for the 50-year class.

The weekend wrapped up with the Remembrance Mass, which included The Class of 1963 celebrated their 50th Reunion, and it was a joyful and the Montrose Pinning Ceremony that officially welcomed new members of Notre Dame’s legacy giving society. Afterward, all gathered for the Farewell Jazz Brunch in Murphy Gathering Space and said their goodbyes. “I have never felt so warmly welcomed and embraced, beyond family and close friends,” wrote Judy Flannery ’63 after the weekend. “Notre Dame will always be in my heart.”

Save the Date: Reunion 2014 is September 19-21.
