Alumni Weekend, a Bethel tradition, is a time to return to campus – to reminisce, see what’s new, visit with the president and retired faculty and staff and relive memories. The 2013 Alumni Weekend is scheduled for May 17-18.
Activities begin Friday evening with a meal, tours and ice cream social. On Saturday is a breakfast for with retired faculty and staff, at which the alumni award recipients share memories of Bethel and reflect their life experience.
The president hosts a mid-morning coffee at Goerz House for classes observing 50 years or more. Those in younger classes mingle over coffee in Schultz Student Center.
Luncheons for classes celebrating their 40th, 45th, 50th, 55th or 60th anniversary are also on Saturday, plus a
Heritage Class luncheon for those observing a 65th, 70th or 75th class anniversary.
Alumni Weekend closes with the annual Alumni Banquet in the evening, where the Awards Committee officially recognizes the honorees.
Some participants stay through Sunday to participate in baccalaureate and commencement, which close the school year.
