More than 3,700 College alumni and their guests descended on campus from May 31–June 3 for Alumni Reunion Weekend and Dean’s Day 2012. The 50-year milestone belonged to the Class of 1962, which capped off its Saturday dinner by presenting a $1.13 million Class Gift to the Columbia College Fund — the largest reunion Class Gift ever given by a 50th-anniversary class. The Class of 1987, meanwhile, celebrated not only its 25-year reunion but also its silver anniversary as the College’s first fully coeducational class.
