Your class Executive Committee is busy planning for our 50th reunion, preliminarily scheduled for June 8 - 10, 2018 with options to extend your stay to June 7 - 11. Gerry Bell, Peter Wonson and David Walden have prepared a Preliminary Reunion Schedule. Check it out Now! Get all the details on the 50th Reunion page.
50 years ago Jamie Newton and Jacob Javits addressed the commencement for the Class of 1968. We've obtained recordings of the addresses from the Rauner Special Collections Library. Listen now!
In this, the year of our 50th Reunion, now is the time to start thinking about your donation to the DCF. Please review the 50th Reunion DCF page for more information.
The 1968-2018 Class Connections Program began with the arrival of the first members of the Class of 2018 on campus in late August. Look here for the latest activities. We'll join them in their graduation walk in June, 2018. Learn more about what we've been doing with the Class of 2018.
The Moosilauke Lodge renovation is complete. Remember that our 50th Reunion Early Bird option includes, the opportunity to climb Mt. Moosilauke and dine at the Lodge. Whether you're planning to participate or not, the architect's video fly-through video must be seen! And now you can see the completed project in this new video.
What is the Ripley Society? Here's a teaser from 50th Reunion co-organizer, Peter Wonson: The Harold C. Ripley ’29 Society was formed in 2009 to recognize alumni who have made a gift to the Dartmouth College Fund every year since graduation. Learn more about the Society and the 1968 members.
Head Class Agent, Joe Nathan Wright, reports on the Class' participation in the 2016-17 Dartmouth College Fund. Joe Nathan recognizes 88 classmates who've donated 40 or more years to the DCF! The classmates who've donated every year since graduation and have thus been designated members of the Ripley Society are listed.
Dartmouth Entrepreneurial Network
Learn more about the Office of Entrepreneurship and Technology Transfer (OETT) and the Dartmouth Entrepreneurial Network on the College website. This Power Point presentation features two previous projects funded by the Class of 1968.
Take the Dartmouth College or Dartmouth Athletics virtual tour. They're entertaining and informative.
Welcome to the new completely redesigned Class of '68 Website!
I hope you find it esthetically pleasing and easy to navigate. The navigation bar on the left side of the screen also functions as a complete site map. The small black arrows signify the presence of sub-menu items. Accordion menus are used to compact and simplify page contents (e.g., click on "December 2017" to see what's new on the website). There are many hundreds of links on the site and while I believe I've checked them all, you may find some that don't take you where you thought you should be. As a general rule, all off-site links, e.g., the Dartmouth Sites listed at the bottom of every page, and links to PDFs open in a new browser tab so you don't loose your place on the class website. If you find something that doesn't work properly, please let me know using the Contact the Web Master form link at the bottom of every page. Finally, the site is designed to display properly on computers, tablets and smart phones. Note that not all content on every page will be available on your smart phone.
