Reunion Weekend 2014




A FAMILIAR RING


MAYBE YOU NEVER TAKE IT OFF. Maybe you keep it in a safe place at home. Either way, your Providence College ring is an enduring symbol of tradition and unity. A tangible reminder of the four years you spent at PC — when Friars became friends and friends became family. A powerful and unique tribute to memories made and memories yet to come.

More than 2,100 alumni and guests enjoyed Reunion Weekend from Friday, May 30, to Sunday, June 1, at Providence College.

A highlight was the viewing of the WaterFire lighting from Waterplace Restaurant on Friday night with entertainment by PC’s student Jazz Band. The weekend concluded with Mass in St. Dominic Chapel and a brunch on Sunday morning. In between, there were class-specific events for alumni who graduated in years ending in 4 and 9.

The Class of 1964 marked its 50th reunion with a Golden Friar Mass followed by a dinner in Slavin Center ’64 Hall, a room named for the class. The Class of 1974 took a creative approach with a progressive dinner, consuming courses in different locations on campus, including the Slavin Center Atrium, Smith Center for the Arts, and the new Ruane Center for the Humanities.

An Instagram contest engaged the classes of 2004 and 2009. Young alumni were invited to photograph their favorite spots on campus and post them on Instagram using the hashtag #PCReunion. The photos were displayed at a barbecue on the Slavin Center lawn. Read more >
