Remarkable spring weather. Ample breezes. Familiar foliage. That’s what greeted nearly 1,800 alumni, family, and friends who returned to Fordham’s Rose Hill campus for the University’s Jubilee Weekend. In all, alumni spanning eight decades—all the way back to the Class of 1953—made it back to campus for the annual reunion weekend, held from May 31 to June 2.

Rose Hill-based alumni, mostly from class years ending in 4s and 9s, reconnected at familiar events like Friday’s Golden Rams Dinner and class parties; Saturday’s welcome address from President Tania Tetlow, followed by campus tours, the Jubilee All-Class Picnic, the Go Rams! Pub Party, and the Jubilee Gala; and Sunday’s Farewell Brunch on Edwards Parade. There were a few new offerings in the bunch, too, including a business pitch challenge with the Fordham Foundry and an early Saturday morning run—an opportunity to take in the campus amid comfortably mild temps.

And at the Loyal Donor Reception on Saturday evening, this year’s reunion classes were recognized for contributing more than $72 million to the University since their last Jubilee.

Save the date for next year’s Jubilee: May 30 to June 1!
