CMCers celebrate largest-ever Alumni Weekend
Nearly 1,000 CMC alumni and friends gathered on campus to celebrate CMC’s 75th Anniversary and class reunions at Claremont McKenna’s largest-ever Alumni Weekend. With many classes missing their reunions due to the pandemic, alumni from the years ending in 0, 1, 2, 5, 6, and 7 were especially excited to return to campus (45 classes total)! With some alumni moving into their former residence halls for the weekend, CMCers reunited with their classmates over delicious meals, caught up with favorite professors, took campus tours and learned about the new integrated sciences program and campus expansion. Collins Dining Hall and Athenaeum Tea were full and bustling with laughter and conversations with their return to these former stomping grounds. Alumni were also treated to ContinuED sessions on topics ranging from North Korea and East Asia to Voter Access in the 2020 Election. Alumni joined a family fun-filled lunch at Stag-a-Palooza with food, live music, and outdoor games. A highlight of the weekend was a discussion with President Hiram Chodosh and emeriti Presidents Jack Stark ’57 GP’11 and Pamela Gann, who came together for a conversation moderated by 75th Anniversary Committee Chair, Sue Matteson King ’85 P’18.
