Dear Classmates,

When we graduated from Bowdoin in 1983, “social media” meant posters and flyers in the mailroom. Our social networks consisted of fraternities, teams, and student activities, and the only thing with 24-hour connectivity was the Coke machine in the basement of Moulton Union. While much has changed since our senior year, our love for Bowdoin stays constant. We invite you back for a weekend on campus to celebrate Bowdoin then and now at our 35th Reunion, Thursday, May 31 through Sunday, June 3.

Reunion Weekend will feature hundreds of events, programs, and gatherings to engage and entertain us throughout the weekend. Programs include Reunion Talks by alumni and faculty, a boat trip to Eagle Island in Casco Bay, special evening access to the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, Bowdoin Brewfest, Alumni Parade and Convocation ceremony, and a traditional Maine lobster bake by Bowdoin’s award-winning Dining Services.

Special events for Class of ’83:

Friday evening House Party at our class headquarters, TD (MacMillan House). We’ll get down and enjoy sounds from the 70’s & 80’s with a DJ. This event is generously sponsored by a classmate.

Saturday evening performance at TD by the Photons! We’ll party like it’s our junior year with Randy Shaw ’82, Keith Shortall ’82, Doug Taylor ’82, and Jim Jenson ‘82 who make a triumphant return to the stage.

Start the conversation early and join or check out the Bowdoin Class of 1983 Facebook group or find us on Twitter @bowdoin1983.

We look forward to seeing you soon beneath the pines!
