Hello Artsci '88 Classmates!
It's hard to believe that 25 years has passed since we graduated. Memories of frosh week and our gael groups, the football games, Alfie's and all the wonderful sports, clubs, and events throughout our time at Queen’s. I am sure your heart beats a bit faster when you see tartan and hear an oil thigh. Our 25th reunion is an opportunity for us all to return to Queen’s, and relive some of those very happy times.
Join us for our 25th Artsci '88 Reunion in Kingston this fall during Homecoming 2013! If you haven't been back for a long time, you will want to see what's happened to the campus, it really looks amazing and a lot of your departments may have moved into new buildings. Things have changed a lot in 25 years and it’s a great city to visit for a weekend!
Date: October 4-6, 2013
