1966 – 50th Reunion

A record-setting number of Polar Bears enjoyed a wonderful weekend on campus for Reunion this year. With almost 1,800 people attending, the Classes of 1951, 1966, 1976, 1981, and 2006 all set attendance records for their respective Reunion years.

The Class of 1966 broke all tracked attendance records for a 50th Reunion with the highest number of alumni attending a 50th Reunion, the highest number of attendees at a 50th Reunion, and tied for the highest percentage of 50th Reunion classmates attending a Reunion. Congratulations Class of 1966!

Classmates, family, and friends laughed at comedian Bob Marley, sampled the finest in New England craft beers, danced to Motown band Soul City, attended inspiring talks by fellow alumni, ate lobster, sang, savored the beauty of Bowdoin in the summertime, and most importantly, enjoyed visiting with old friends.
