Hillsdale College Class of 1959

A large (in number) and jovial group of 1959 graduates returned to Hillsdale for their 50th Reunion during Commencement Weekend. Classmates, most of whom spent two nights in the McIntyre Residence Hall, enjoyed catching up with one another, touring the campus, poring over class memorabilia, and generally remembering their Good Ol’ Days at The Dale. Professor Tom Conner and Alumni Director Grigor Hasted, ’74 entertained the Class at their Friday evening banquet with a review of world and national events and campus goings-on while they were students. And on Saturday, the Class donned caps and gowns and marched with this year’s graduates at Commencement. The Class of ’59 also made a significant gift to the Legacy Scholarship Endowment.

Online Directory

“Registration 101”
Joyce’s User Tip of the Month

The College’s Online Alumni Directory was re-launched in May, and the Alumni Office has been very pleased with the heightened activity we have witnessed on the site. The directory is a valuable networking resource and communications tool, and it will become even more useful as alums learn to take advantage of its powerful features.

This month (and for several months to come), we would like to offer useful tips to help alumni get the most out of this resource. While the Alumni Office has already pre-populated the directory with contact information for most alumni, we encourage you to visit the site to complete and update your personal information.
