Saturday events will feature lookbacks at quintessential Athenian experiences, with current and former faculty members serving as special guests. Since class cohort breakouts will happen on Sunday with times overlapping, Saturday will be the best day to reconnect with faculty and anyone who you might not see in your individual cohort reunion. We are already expecting Eleanor Dase, Dick Bradford, and Virginia Mack as special guests. A full lineup of returning faculty will be announced in May.
