Reunion 2016 drew 275 alumni of all ages from across the country for a weekend of activities that provided a chance to reconnect with old friends, reminisce, and make new connections and memories.

Alumni representing classes ranging from 1946 to 2016 were represented with the 50th Anniversary Class of 1966 breaking the attendance record with 62 members present.  On Saturday, the Class of 1966 dedicated the Peterson Chapel balcony as their 50th Reunion Class gift.

"Reunion was delightful. Alumni reconnected with friends and made new ones. Getting back to Elmira's postcard-picture-perfect campus always lifts the spirit and reminds alumni why Elmira College is one of the great small colleges of the nation," said Mike Rogers, Vice President of External Relations.

Additional highlights from the weekend included the annual Parade of Classes, Mountain Day Picnic, 2nd Annual EC Wine Fest, visits to the grounds of Quarry Farm, and lectures by faculty and returning alumna and financial expert, Kim Wenglik Curtis '83.
