1968 is proud to have broken attendance records for a 50th Reunion- a joyous and exuberant celebration of friendship.
Now 1968 invites classmates to return to Penn for Homecoming 2018 - continuing 50th Reunion celebrations, as we bury the 1968-2018 Time Capsule in our Legacy Garden and dedicated the bronze Garden plaque.
The name of every donor to 1968's Legacy Project will be included in the Time Capsule for posterity.
The Legacy Garden is enjoying great popularity among students and faculty who keep the Garden filled with life.
Congratulations to the Class of 1968 for envisioning and building this beautiful garden -- and for raising over $7 million dollars for scholarships and undergraduate initiatives.
If you have ideas for the items to be included in the Time Capsule please email email@example.com or send them to Lisbeth Willis, Penn Alumni Relations, Sweeten Alumni House 3533 Locust Walk, Philadelphia, PA 19104 before November 9.
