The Run of the Place From Wesley Hall to Cascarelli’s, fond memories resurfaced as alumni came Back2Campus May 16-20. The spring gathering featured 50th and 45th reunions for the classes of 1968 and 1973, respectively, and more alums from the ’66 through ’75 graduating years, as well as from the last decade, also took part—revisiting their treasured college days in a whole new way.
