In Pursuit of Excellence

Dartmouth College Recognizes with Deep Appreciation the Extraordinary Achievements of


Special Recognition 2016 Outstanding Mini-Reunion Award for Building Upon a Theme

The Mini-Reunion Chairs Association is comprised of all class mini-reunion chairs – a group of individuals spanning seven decades and the globe – who are selected by their classmates and generously volunteer their time building and maintaining the bond between their classmates and the College. Mini-Reunions are integral to providing Dartmouth alumni with opportunities for classmates and friends to gather, reflect, and generate enthusiasm.

Mini-reunion chairs foster classmate connections by building upon the legendary ties that Dartmouth alumni feel toward alma mater. The mini-reunion program, in turn, encourages alumni to both return to campus for major events such as Homecoming and Reunion and to provide critical – and generous – financial support to the many classes following in their footsteps.

The Class of 1964 continues to strengthen its mini-reunion program with creative new opportunities built upon important shared experiences. With the assistance of the Dartmouth Alumni Travel staff, 12 classmates and 13 guests traveled to Vietnam with Associate Professor of History Edward Miller in December to revisit areas familiar to them from the war. Following the trip, five Vietnam War veteran classmates served as panelists during a discussion with Dartmouth’s ROTC cadets, current students, classmates, and guests as part of History 26: The Vietnam War, a class taught by Professor Miller. This mini-reunion was truly inspirational and we can’t wait to hear what is planned for next year!
