Class of 1983 Reunion

Eckerd College Alumni Weekend 2008

Calling one and all: Dante, Kennedy, Darwin, Benedict, Wilson, Freeman, Knox, Newton, James, Berkeley, Copley, Ibsen, Douglas, Dalton, Blakeley, Beecher, Oberg, Morris, Leighton, Scott, Henderson, Hubbard, Hiaasen, Kirby, ELS and “off campus” Eckerd students, your College is turning 50 years old!

Remember Tom DeLuca, the hypnotist, the ELS wild-and-crazy Halloween party, HomelyComing, the Bow Wow Wow concert, Senior Beer Bash (oh, have times changed), TGI-WECR for MDA, Sid Vicious Dance, Mud Wrestling, Baseball B’s, Barry Manilow with the Eckerd College Concert Choir, Stop Day, Intramural Football, EC-SAR rescues and Bruce Springsteen tunes wailing from four-foot speakers?

We came as strangers and left as friends. That Eckerd friendship and fellowship is alive and well and awaits your arrival in St. Petersburg on November 14–16 for a fun-filled and meaningful 25th Anniversary Celebration for the Class of 1983 and the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the founding of the College—a great combination.

The Eckerd Alumni Association has planned a jam-packed Alumni Weekend. In addition, we will host a special evening on Friday night at the Tradewinds Island Grand Beach Resort, our official “reunion hotel” for the weekend. So we ask you to brave the beautiful sunsets at St. Pete Beach, relish in the fellowship of the Class of 1983 and enjoy the fond memories of the place that helped make us who we are today.
