About Connections

 The 1969<->2019 Class Connections Program carries on a unique and special Dartmouth tradition pairing classes that are fifty years apart.  Each incoming Freshman Class is connected to the alumni class that will celebrate its 50th Reunion on the same weekend that the undergraduate class has its graduation. The primary goals are to promote inter-class, inter-generational friendships and to strengthen the Dartmouth community through a series of shared events hosted by the alumni class.

Class Connextions: Spring Training in a COVID World

Sandy Alderson will continue our casual conversation series on Zoom with a session on baseball, as he describes below.

Dinner with the '19s

On a snowy-sleety-rainy Tuesday in April, several of us had dinner with a group of '19s in the Tom Dent cabin. What an awesome group of students and what a terrific class for our Connections program. The questions they ask and the comments they make have been wonderful over the last four years. It will be sad to not see them on campus after they graduate - but we can hope they will continue to join our Class for events like Homecoming and mini-Reunions.

A basketball connection

As part of our Class Connections effort during this year's Homecoming weekend, classmate Bill Stableford  teamed up with some current '19s who are part of the Dartmouth Basketball Program.  Shown in the photo below are:

The women all said that they love trivia, so we will want to engage them for our next Trivia Night event.
