Reunion 2018

Reunion 2018

A record-breaking 3,044 alumni, family members, and friends turned out for Reunion 2018. Attendees celebrated the life of beloved professor emerita Pat Lamb at a campus memorial service. They enjoyed a variety of activities, including a faculty recital hosted by the Class of ’63 in the new Kracum Performance Hall, an alumni scientists symposium, and a panel on climate change presented by members of the Class of ’68. And, as always, they had a lot of fun.

“I have such warm feelings for Carleton, and still feel that the people I knew there were among the most exceptional I’ve ever met,” said one attendee. “I wanted to see them again.”
