Campus buzzed with activity — and cicadas — this weekend as alumni returned to the Hill for Reunion Weekend. More than 1,300 people from 41 states and eight countries attended, according to Scott R. Baker ’94, associate vice president of alumni and parent engagement.
This year’s event hosted classes ending in years one and six, from 1966 to 2011. The reunion also marked a milestone as the Kokosingers, Kenyon’s oldest a cappella group, celebrated their 50th anniversary, and the Peeps gathered for an affinity reunion. Kokosingers alumni performed a concert at 9 p.m. Saturday, May 28, in Rosse Hall.
“Every reunion year has its unique characteristics, and this one had it all, from a bittersweet celebration of our beloved Dean Tom Edwards to raising the roof at the Kokosingers 50th Reunion concert,” Baker said. “Reunion Weekend 2016 had something for everyone — including cicadas!”
