From Friday, June 7 to Sunday, June 9, 2024, Saint Anselm College hosted nearly 750 alumni, from classes ending in 4’s and 9’s, and their guests for their reunion weekend. Members of the class of 1974 were also inducted into the Order of Golden Anselmians. 

“This weekend, we had the chance to welcome back so many alumni, family, and friends back to the Hilltop,” said Joseph Emmons ’04, assistant vice president of alumni relations and engagement. “Their support and love for the college are part of what makes the Anselmian experience so unique.”

Over the course of the weekend, attendees reconnected, celebrated, and attended a variety of seminars including a “Meet the Dean” event with Diane Uzarski, DNP, MPH, RN, from the Jean School of Nursing and Health Sciences, a chance to delve deeper into Benedictine traditions with beekeeping, beer, and hospitality. They also relaxed and played cornhole at the alumni barbecue, pickleball on the tennis courts, gathered by the decades for dinner, danced the night away under the tent on the campus green, and listened to live music at the Pub.

Alumni also spent time honoring classmates who were no longer with them at the Military Tribute and the Alumni Memorial Mass. During the Military Tribute, Captain Mary Jo O’Dwyer Majors ’69 also took time to remember Walter Gallo ’58.

A special thank you to the Alumni Relations team, the Office of College Advancement, Dining Services, Physical Plant, Athletics, and the Office of College Communications and Marketing. The College also thanks the many reunion class volunteers who helped to make the event successful. 

“Thank you for your time, service, and dedication to make this place special,” stated Joseph A. Favazza, Ph.D., president of Saint Anselm College, at the volunteer thank you reception. “Together, we ensure the perpetuity of the College. We are so grateful – and fortunate – to have such a caring, committed community.”
