The 44th was the full Princeton Reunion experience. The 62 Classmates and guests who gathered over the 4 days experienced the best our alma mater can offer. Alumni panels provoked critical thinking and conversation on such diverse topics as the 2016 Presidential race, museums and their obligations to repatriate certain objects, the impact of mobile devices on journalism, the promise and peril of commercial drone aircraft, and many more. The ample talent of current Princeton students was on display at the improv performances of Quipfire, the dance recital for eXpressions, and the always popular Triangle Show. Walking across campus any night meant enjoying a range of musical styles from jazz, to rock, and contemporary. Of course, it wouldn't be Princeton Reunions without a bit of heat and humidity and a surprise downpour Thursday afternoon.
Under the seasoned leadership of Class Reunions Chair Jack Hittson, '71 was treated to a never-ending series of events from the Friday BBQ with '68 and '69, a delicious Saturday lunch and time to mingle with Classmates, the P-Rade, and evening Class cocktail reception and elegant dinner at Prospect.
