Preparing for Virtual Reunion

  • Curious about how the Virtual Reunion Attendee Hub will look/work? Watch this demo/tutorial.
  • Make sure that you are Zoom ready by uploading the latest version of Zoom, and watching this video about Zoom basics.
  • Log into the Hub early in the day on the 3rd so that you have time to familiarize yourself with the platform with plenty of time before your first live program.

Anne Gagnebin Coffin and Mary Tison Wheeler are thrilled to welcome members of the  great class of 1961 to our 60th Reunion! We have an exciting  program ahead of us organized to connect us with Smith today and  with our friends and classmates.  Faculty lectures, a tour of the new Nielson Library,  a fascinating talk by Jessica Nichol, Director of the Smith College Museum of Art,  will be interspersed with our own class of ‘61 events: a Class Meeting led by our dedicated and spirited President Betsy Carter, a report on our Class Questionnaire by Deborah Heller, a Class Tea, and an illustrated talk, A Brush with History, given by our distinguished classmate Carolyn Kinder Carr about the collection of the National Portrait Gallery where she served for many years as Deputy Director and Chief Curator. Break-out rooms, question-and-answer sessions  as well as our Class Tea will provide opportunities for conversation and reconnecting with classmates.
