ANNOUNCEMENTS

Check out "In The News" with articles on two alums volunteering in the Fair Hill neighborhood where Swarthmore founders are buried, on how Swarthmore is doing, on classmate John Mather.  

More sad news.  We just learned that Libby Bennett passed away Sunday, May 9 at Bryn Mawr Hospital.  She had pneumonia.  We'll post more details and an obituary when available. 

Sad news that Arthur Fink, photographer, died Wednesday, April 21st, 2021 of pancreatic cancer.  An article/obituary on the In Memory page gives a lovely glimpse of his rich life.

From the desk of Aurora Winslade, Sustainability Director:

Friends,

You are warmly invited to virtually join the 2020–21 cohort of the President’s Sustainability Research Fellows as they conduct their final presentations on Monday, May 10 from 1 to 3 p.m. ET. 

The President’s Sustainability Research Fellowship (PSRF) program matches motivated students with small teams of staff and faculty mentors to research, develop, and implement projects in a yearlong course and associated internship. PSRF is a joint program of the President’s Office, the Office of Sustainability, the Environmental Studies Program, and the Lang Center for Civic and Social Responsibility.

See the drop down page for more details.

 

In an email Aurora wrote this:  "Yes, one of the presenters is supported by the Class of '68 50th Reunion class gift. We'll be sure to share with your classmates which PSRF fellow that is, and we're going to be sure that's it clearly noted in this year's Annual Report, as well. We've set up our financial accounts so that the accounts are separate, as well, so that we'll always be clearly tracking which fellow is supported by the Class of '68 Class gift each year, as well." 

 

Hi Everybody,

Welcome to the Swarthmore Class of 1968 website!!  Remember these folks?  There are more pictures like these on the Past Reunions - 45th Reunion page and the S'more Photos/Art/Pix Gallery - 45th Reunion page.  And you may have a close-up!  

If you haven't yet logged on, go to First Time Visitors on the panel to your left and follow instructions for logging on/registering.

Once you're on the site, you can create a profile for yourself under the Classmate Profile site - third "button" down on the left panel.  When you find your name and click on it, your profile will come up.  Click on "Edit Profile" to begin the process.  

You will find your Halcyon picture on the 1968 Halcyon site half way down the list on the left.  Those who graduated in 1969 will find a link to the 1969 Halcyon as well.  And your Cygnet picture, on the 1964 Cygnet page underneath.  I will be happy to help you retrieve and download and then upload those pictures to the site.  If you have a recent picture in a file that's easy to get to, put your cursor over the picture frame where you'd like it to go on your profile and click on "Select Picture."  Go to the picture file you want and open it.  Follow instructions.  Be patient.  Sometimes the site is slow and the little circle will wheel around for a bit before your picture is completely uploaded. 

The Class Gift proposals are listed in an index under Class Gift Proposals.  Each proposal is presented at greater length which you can access with the dropdown menu.  There is a general Class Gift discussion forum and individual discussion forums for each proposal under the Class Gift Discussion Forums on the left.

Go ahead.  Poke around.  You can't break anything.  

Email me with questions.  Send feedback that would be helpful for those who will come after.

Good luck and have fun.  It's a brave new world in here.

Nancy Bennett, Administrator
