Each year, the College welcomes alumni and their families back to Hanover for class reunions.
“Very quickly, the teenagers and juniors settled won in their respective groups, with almost unlimited activities to keep them busy and free parents for their own interests. On Tuck Drive, ping-pong, volleyball, horseshoes, basketball, records, dancing were all available and many of the youngsters also took advantage of the college facilities for playing golf and tennis, or swam out at Storrs Pond (something new since you and I were there).
During the class picnic, arrangements had been made so that the kids had an opportunity to take a hayride on a real hay wagon drawn by two big farm horses that made trips out into the countryside. Not the least of their pleasure came from scaling space saucers through the air–the saucers being plastic discs approximately a foot across with a lip around the edge. This fad swept the Dartmouth campus this spring and it took no time for the youngsters as well as their parents to get into the swing of the thing.”
