Our class kicked off its 50th Golden Anniversary year in October with a champagne brunch on the Rhode Island College campus. Those who attended enjoyed reconnecting and reminiscing about our time as students. We truly missed those who could not be with us!

Giving to our Class of 1969 Fund
We lived through historical times in the 1960’s. Issues of social concern, humanity, civil rights, and education were uppermost in our consciousness. In commemoration of the historical year in which we graduated, as well as the outstanding, affordable education we received, we have decided to establish the Class of 1969 Scholarship Fund to provide financial assistance to a current undergraduate or graduate student pursuing their degree. Many of us have been generous to the college over the years, and may have already made annual gifts this year. Please know that in honor of our reunion, any and all gifts made to the college this year will be collectively recognized, in total, at commencement.
