Last weekend Haverford welcomed back family, friends, and alumni to join the campus community in an event that combined the annual Friends & Family Weekend with the inaugural Young Alumni Homecoming and a kickoff of the College’s capital campaign, Lives That Speak. Celebrating the Haverford Difference, as the weekend was called, was three days of alumni panels, art openings, celebratory meals, open houses that offered a glimpse of “the future of Haverford,” and a screening of a new film about Haverford by Ben Hickernell ’00. The weekend also included a memorial service for former College President Tom Kessinger ’63.
The weekend also featured big news: Board Chair Howard Lutnick ’83 announced his unprecedented gift—the largest in the College’s history—of $25 million to to substantially renovate the library. (Watch the gift announcement and Lutnick’s speech below.)
The weather was beautiful, the fall foliage was at its peak, and spirits were high among the over 800 attendees. See for yourself.
