Our 100th birthday is April 5


The Founders Day festivities on April 5 -- including a historical talk, birthday cake and tea, and the first public performance of the new Centennial song -- will mark the 100th anniversary of the day the College was chartered in 1911.

The Harkness Chapel bell will ring 100 times and everyone will meet on Tempel Green for an all-campus photo.

The celebration begins at 1:15 p.m. and you're welcome to join us. More about Founders Day.
