Reunion 2013 in Pictures

The Bryn Mawr Alumnae Association welcomed back a record-breaking 1,100 alumnae/i and guests to Reunion 2013. Alumnae of the ’80s joined graduating classes of years ending in three and eight. To commemorate this milestone weekend, the Bulletin compiled this album of some of our favorite photos. Also check out Tweets to the #bmcreunion hashtag.

Comments on “Reunion 2013 in Pictures”

  1. The photos give a heartening view of the enduring love for Bryn Mawr and the joy of the connections!

    I attended the 2013 Reunion, class of '43. Seventy years ago. WWII. Fiance on a battleship in the Pacific. Pre TV.

    I have outlived my closest, dearest Bryn Mawr friends, but not the memory of those four years and the ongoing happiness of keeping in touch.

  2. These are inspiring...To Barb Marshall, my mother-in-law I believe graduated with you- Mary Cox (later, Farrington; history major)- she'd have loved to attend her 70th, to be in touch. After BMC she returned to Albany and rarely left, and died in 1995 in Williamstown, MA but her grand-dau kept on the family quest and graduated in 2009!
    The tribute to Karen Tidmarsh was one of the most memorable events of the weekend!

  3. Anthro. grads and McBride scholars of '93 : These photos made me think of so many special students I had the privilege to teach and advise. Should any of you see this it would be lovely to hear about what you're doing now.
