Happy 100th birthday, Connecticut College!

12/17/2010

Jan. 1 marks the start of the College's Centennial year, and we're kicking it off in style.

Check the alumni calendar for Centennial Teas in Boston and Philadelphia on Jan. 12 and 13, featuring discussions with current students.

In New London, the January calendar includes the launch of "Great Beginnings: Conversations with Alumni," on Jan. 28. Lee Eisenberg '99, writer and co-executive producer of "The Office," is the inaugural speaker.

January also features a Centennial Tea on campus, a new exhibit at Shain Library, and the opening of a Centennial photo show downtown.

Jan. 15 is also the deadline for submitting entries to the Centennial song contest. There's still time to write something celebrating the College's history and spirit.

Visit the Centennial website for details and more information about the year-long celebration. And watch your mail, the website, and Facebook for more details in January.
