Well, at least that is what George Wills, President of the Class of 1949 called his 65th Reunion when we first met to start planning the event. But after seeing this group of vibrant alumni, I doubt it. The Class of 1949 celebrated fully during alumni Weekend 2014. In addition to a wonderful class representation on Saturday’s Alumni Day, a group of classmates joined together on Friday for a full day of events. They started with a luncheon where Chris Maxwell addressed them and spoke about the benefits of positive thinking. Immediately following this celebration they took an exclusive Mural Arts Tour of Philadelphia. Then after a short afternoon break, they gathered once again for a dinner and movie night. Classmate, Shirley Adelman wrote, “For me, it was a completely positive experience.” It was so much fun to see the Class of 1949 enjoying life and Penn this spring!

All alumni are invited to participate in the annual Penn Alumni Arts Fair to be held on Saturday, November 9 from 10 AM until 5 PM during Homecoming Weekend. We welcome any medium–from paintings, to sculpture, to crafts or drawings. Although this is not a juried show, vendors include high-caliber professional artists as well as those whose work is a passionate avocation.
This is the fifth year that Penn is celebrating Homecoming Weekend featuring Arts & Culture. We would love to have our largest group of artists to date!
