We are excited to celebrate Alumni Reunion 2022 all year long with all alumni, but especially our honored classes of 1962, 1967, 1972, 1982, 1992, 1997, 2002 and 2012.
Our celebration will be bookmarked with a weekend together on campus in August.
In the spirit of celebrating your reunion all year, we invite you to post your favorite memories below.
Keep an eye on the Reunion website for details of the in-person event August 4-6!
To get started with our celebration, let’s hear about your favorite Winter Carnival memories!
This year’s theme is “Come One, Come All to Our 100th Carnival.”
Were you involved in any of these past snow statues?

Do not forget the 100 year Football and Hockey Reunions this year! They will be huge events.
During Carnival, but not a Carnival event, I remember the brave midnight ride in my friend’s (nameless to protect him!) 4-wheel-drive pickup to see how far up the slopes of Mont Ripley we could drive. Not very far as it turned out, and we spent some lengthy freezing time digging out. Too bad that Ripley snowcat’s keys weren’t in it because that was our first attempt for a tow vehicle!
Some friends and I wanted to take advantage of the time off from school by snowshoeing. But this had to be an epic trip. We ended up snowshoeing in and around Brockway Mountain with no more than a map on a napkin. Somehow, after climbing up a ridge, we made it back within thirty yards of the truck many hours later. It was exhilarating, peaceful, beautiful, and looking back, one of those moments that you can’t believe you did.
My wife and I got engaged while snowshoeing out at McLains during winter carnival 2014 while visiting as alumni.
Living in DHH for 3 of my 4 years, I generally was on Letter Duty for the snow statue. I still have clothes that are stained blue from the slush!!!! We would be stuck in a back stairwell in the middle of the dorm and had buckets of snow that we made into slush, then filled the wooden frames so the blocks would set up and freeze. Then cutting out the letters. It was one of my favorite things to do.
I remember the Spring Fling game throwing half a hotdog from a moving shopping cart into a cooler after the Lorana Bobbitt incident.
