Alumni 50th Reunion Central

​​Allegheny Class of '66

When old friends and classmates reconnect, no matter how long it has been,  there is a special Allegheny bond that will make the years melt away. The memories and anecdotes we’ll share during this milestone reunion are sure to enrich us, renewing old friendships and creating new ones.  

See these comments by two ’66s who attended Allegheny’s Bicentennial Reunion in May 2015 expressing the special impact of milestone reunions:

  • Dick Alfred: Three days on campus for the Bicentennial with friends and classmates were not only meaningful--they were priceless! For me personally they drove home the realization that, as a class, we are an extended family. There are roughly 280 of us with known addresses that make up the Class of ’66. The memories shared in late May and the easy camaraderie among classmates--almost as if 50 years had not passed--was special. It is my hope that as many of us as possible will be on campus for our 50th on June 2-5, 2016. There are conversations to be had, memories to be shared, and bonds to be renewed.

  • Toni Swain Marwitz: I am so proud to be an Alleghenian! The campus was glorious, bedecked with blue and gold banners celebrating the Bicentennial. Everyone was in a festive mood, thanks to the extraordinary efforts of the alumni office to produce many fond memories. The highlight of the weekend for me was singing in the Reunion Choir. There wasn't a dry eye in the house when we sang the Alma Mater.  

Those attending from previous classes have described 50th reunions with such enthusiasm, it can’t help but make us all want to head to Meadville:

  • From Karen Darlington Halstead, Class of '64: “Such special friendships we made those few years ago.  Those friendships are as strong as ever!  Join your class to share memorable times.  President Mullen and a marvelous staff rolled out the red carpet to welcome us back!  The class of 1964 has new memories and a renewed spirit of dedication to Allegheny!”       

  • From Carol Fetcko Barndollar, Class of '64: “The 50th Reunion last year was not only a landmark reunion, it was special in that it seemed that everyone was comfortable being there, seeing friends that seemed more like family, sharing stories that were special from the years we were at Allegheny, and finding out “new” stories of events in our lives since graduation. I personally didn’t want to have the weekend end! It truly is a reunion that should not be missed!”

  • From Sandi Kenyon Smith Linaberger, Class of '62: “We laughed, we cried, we sang, we remembered. The returning classmates are who or what makes it a weekend to remember. Allegheny does a phenomenal job making sure needs and wishes are met and keeping us smiling and content.  May your 50th be as heart warming and memorable as mine. I wouldn't have missed it for anything.”  *** See how Sandi met her second husband at an Allegheny reunion: The Linaberger Love Story

  • From James Balent, Class of '64: "Reunion weekend was wonderful. It was great to see classmates that I had not seen for 50 years. The college did a great job for us. My only negative was that it had to end."
