Class of 1993 – One Year Until We Celebrate (52 Weeks To Go)

By Lisa Nass Grabelle, C’93, L’96, and Kiera Reilly, C’93

Last summer, we started counting down the ninety-three weeks until our 25th Penn Reunion, and now, the weekend of May 12 – 15, 2017, we are at the one year mark until we celebrate the twenty-five years since our graduation from Penn.

We celebrated our first Alumni Day on Saturday, May 15, 1993, by marching down Locust Walk as a class to lead the alumni parade of classes. We gathered on College Green to listen to Penn President Sheldon Hackney and sing, “The Red and The Blue.”

On Monday, May 17, 1993, we processed from Superblock, down Locust Walk, and into Franklin Field for our Commencement.

Twenty-four years passed…

And we are now in full swing planning our class’ 25th Reunion for May 11-13, 2018! Our planning committee is growing by the day, and we’d love for you to join us.  Email us at upenn1993@Gmail.com or lisagrabelle@yahoo.com to join our Reunion Committee.

Our Reunion will be here before we know it – look for information about our hotel block very soon. In the meantime, be sure to save our the reunion dates on your calendar, and also save Monday, May 14, which is Commencement. The 25th and 50th reunion classes are invited to march in the Commencement procession, and it is very special to walk on Franklin Field again with the alumni classes. We strongly encourage you to participate if you can!

Every classmate is invited to join us for a fun weekend of reunion planning back at Penn Reunion Leadership Conference (PRLC) on September 15- 16. The conference is actually one day on Saturday, September 16th, but we will have Class of 93 only planning on the 15th in the afternoon and then all go out that night. We welcome you to join us for either or both days.

We want to continue our trip down memory lane, and are looking for blog posts, photos, mementos or memories of our time at Penn. Please email us if you have something to share – we want to include as many classmates as possible in our future posts.

We are excited as we look toward this next year, and hope to make our reunion next May one that our entire class will not forget.

Let’s get ready to meet at the button!
