Peter Elias' reflections on Coming Home 2023

(Peter Elias offered these thoughts about our Class Coming Home gathering this past weekend.)

As I entered Hanover from the north, having spent several wonderful days hiking and eating at the Ravine Lodge, I truly felt that I was returning home. Driving past Baker, Rollins, Robo (Robinson Hall) and the Green, I recalled how I felt the first time I saw Hanover on a similarly glorious Fall day while touring New England with my father to look at possible colleges: this is my kind of place.

Coming Home 2023: Updated Schedule admin

Dartmouth College Class of 1969

ComingHome Weekend - October 6-8, 2023

ComingHome (formerly knowns as Homecoming) 2023

At this time, our next in-person gathering is planned for October of 2023: Homecoming 2023 will be the weekend of October 6 & 7.

Plans are still being finalized but will likely include a climb up Mt. Moosilauke, an in-person Casual Conversation, a class meeting, tailgating, football against Yale, and plenty of free time to socialize with classmates. We would love to have a great turnout. The more ‘69s, the better!

Homecoming this past weeekend was awesome.

Planning for future Homecomings (2023 and beyond) admin

Questions have been raised about the best timing and structure for our Class Homecoming event. The College currently alternates between early and late October to coincide with home football games against Yale and Harvard. Late October weather in New England and higher prices during the official Homecoming weekend are disincentives for some in our Class.
