From Adams to Zukowski, more than 860 alumni from 43 states returned to the Hill on May 23-25 to celebrate Reunion Weekend.
This year’s event hosted classes ending in years four and nine, from 1964 to 2009, and featured a meet-and-greet with Grammy-nominated children’s music performer Zak Morgan ’94, a “Wild Wonders” evening presented by the Columbus Zoo, and an all-reunion concert by 1980s covers band Part-Time Lovers with Justin Roberts ’92, Liam Davis ’90, and Gerald Dowd.
The reunion also marked several milestones as the first officiated by President Sean Decatur and the first to celebrate more than one singing group. The Owl Creeks, marking their 40th anniversary, and the Stairwells, notching their first reunion after many years of performance, both assembled.
And because the first co-educational class graduated in 1973, the reunion was the second featuring eight of 10 modern-sized classes and may be the largest ever. What is certainly a record-breaker is the number of wordsmiths returning to their roots — 15 Kenyon authors shared their work during the weekend of revelry.
