Alumni Weekend 2007
Alumni Show Their Colors
Nearly 600 alumni, friends, and family visited campus in mid-October to celebrate Alumni Weekend 2007.
A new addition to the festivities was the Black and Orange Grand Reception. Alumni from all class years donned the school colors and listened to President Tom Hochstettler's state of the college address. Afterward, alumni, current students, and other members of the Lewis & Clark community headed to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry for a family-friendly event that featured lively conversation, good food, and dancing.
