Every class reunion at Whittier College is a special one. In recent years, the 50th Reunion celebration has been an opportunity for the class to organize a significant gift campaign focusing on participation and dollar goals that reflect the magnitude of this important milestone.
Class of 1965
It’s time to celebrate 50 years since your graduation from Whittier College! Fond memories of Dr. Upton and Design for Thinking, and Dr. Nerhood and Moby Dick probably still echo in your minds. And who can forget notable Poet memories such as "Button Frosh", Jacks, Founders Hill, 'Old Hadley' Field, or The Spot? We hope you will be part of your 50th Reunion celebration and relive many of these memories at Whittier Weekend, October 23 - 25.
Whittier Weekend and Reunion details coming soon.
We hope you will return to the Poet campus for your 50th Reunion and participate in your Class Gift. Your gift of ANY amount - $19.65, $50, $500, $5,000 - counts toward your class participation total.
Many of you can also give back to your alma mater by including Whittier in your will or estate plans by becoming members of the Philadelphian Society. These planned commitments play a tremendous role in maintaining the College's success as a nationally recognized liberal arts institution.
Amy Carlton, Associate Director of Development, is available to answer questions regarding your class gift and can be reached at 562.907.4214 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Class of 1965 is being offered a reduced price of $200 for a Poet brick. For those who haven't been on campus lately, Poet bricks fill a path between Deihl Hall (formerly Naylor Hall) and the Campus Center, known as Founders Walkway. Each red brick is inscribed with a special message, tribute, or memory (most alumni inscribe their name and class year). Click here to purchase your Poet brick and take advantage of this limited time opportunity.
We look forward to seeing you at Whittier Weekend, October 23 - 25!
