CELEBRATE the Waterfront’s 50th Anniversary in March 2022!

“There’s nothing––absolutely nothing––half so much worth doing as messing about in boats.”    ― Kenneth Grahame

The Eckerd College Waterfront Program turns 50-years old in 2021 – come celebrate with us!

We’re planning for an amazing reunion celebration and hope to see you there. Please bring your family and let your Eckerd friends know!

The main event will coincide with the March 2022 Eckerd College Alumni-Reunion weekend. Our goal is to bring together as many Waterfront friends as we can including alumni, past and present Waterfront team members, Waterfront student employees, Waterfront recreation users, parents and community members/partners.

Leading up to this weekend-long celebration – we’ll host some nation-wide events and fun social media challenges to help celebrate the Waterfront Program and what it’s best known for –  teaches lifetime skills, instills a service first ethic, and develops lifelong friendships.

The Waterfront Program has done so much for so many. We truly hope you’ll help celebrate this one of a kind college program by attending the celebration, spreading the word about the reunion, and/or volunteering to help plan. If you have any questions, please let us know!
