Generally, the Insights program includes:
Friday evening: The lobsterbake will begin at 5:30 p.m. under the big tent on Temple Green and will run until 7 p.m. Reunion committees will meet after dinner to start Reunion planning! At 8 p.m. Insights guests are welcomed to attend the keynote address by Fernando Espuelas ’88. Reunion sessions this year will focus on providing opportunities of alums to revisit and rediscover what they love about Connecticut College. What do you think Reunion 2014 should feature?
Saturday Breakfast and Reunion Giving Workshop: The day will begin with breakfast at 8:30 a.m. in Cro’s Nest in the College Center at Crozier-Williams. Meet members of the College’s annual giving team who will be working with you to help raise a significant class gift with broad-based participation. Hear about effective strategies and learn how you can play an important role.
Parade, President, and Picnic Lunch: At 10:30 a.m. you’ll cheer on Reunion classes as they march up Cro Boulevard to Alumni Convocation at 10:45 a.m in the College Center. At Convocation you’ll hear an informative State of the College presentation from President Higdon. The morning concludes with an all-campus picnic on the Green.
Reunion Planning Session: At 1:15 p.m., you’ll get to meet one on one with your classmates and other Insights volunteers to discuss your impressions of the weekend and start planning for next year. Take note of what you did and didn’t like, and what you’d like to see for your own class at next year’s celebration. The program ends promptly at 2 but you’re welcome to stay on campus until 4 p.m. to continue planning or to enjoy other Reunion events.
Registration: Registration for Insights 2014 will be opened in mid-March.
