50TH REUNION UPDATE
May 11-13, 2018
To all our friends in the Mount Allison class of 1968,
The plans for our 50th Mt. A reunion are proceeding! The 50th reunion class is the Special Class and we are treated with “pomp and ceremony” during the weekend. It would be wonderful if we could show up in great numbers to celebrate the event. Whether you are a regular reunion attendee or have not been back in many years, we encourage you to consider a return to campus for this exceptional occasion.
Many university events are planned for all reunion classes during the weekend. We are organizing a unique class dinner Friday night when you have the opportunity to reacquaint yourselves with classmates, the campus and Sackville. Later that evening, there is a band and dance for all reunion classes. Saturday includes campus tours and things of interest for you to do along with the Reunion Lunch which is well attended by all. On Saturday afternoon there will be the short pin ceremony for our class at which the university formally honours each member of the class of 1968 after 50 years. We attended the ceremony last year and were very impressed! The Alumni Banquet for all returning classes is held on Saturday evening and again our class will be recognized as the exceptional class. Following, there is an evening of music and entertainment. Sunday has some smaller events as we wind down for our return home.
Needless to say, there have been many changes to the campus in 50 years. Buildings are both new and renovated over the years and are very impressive, making Mount Allison a truly superb university. Residences are both new and refurbished also. We toured some of the residences and have been offered Bigelow House for our entire class use exclusively. It has been totally reconfigured and offers private rooms with 2 rooms sharing a bathroom which created suites for our use. There are lots of common rooms and places to meet with one another. Quite the change from our day!
All in all, it is a wonderful weekend for everyone. We do hope you will give serious thought to joining us in Sackville for our 50th reunion. Your commitment should be made shortly, however, as the 2017 reunion weekend was totally sold out last year.. As part of the property upgrades, Windsor Hall will be unavailable as it will be under construction so space will be limited and the university works on a first come basis. Give some thought to making your decision soon.
Mount Allison influenced all our lives while we were in Sackville and most of us have many wonderful memories of our time spent on the campus. Why not come back and relive some of that time with your classmates? Pam and I look forward to hearing from you and hope to see many familiar faces at the reunion in May.
THIS IS THE REUNION YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS

Class of '68 Entrance Scholarship
In 2008, following our 40th reunion, the Class of 68 launched a five-year campaign to create a scholarship as our legacy project.
Following are the criteria for the scholarship:
- The award is an entrance scholarship of a minimum of $4000.
- It is given to a well-rounded student as demonstrated by her/his leadership, community service and extracurricular activities.
- The student must have a strong academic standing, though may not be at the top of their class.
- Preference is given to a student with financial need.
In 2008 a legacy project committee was established to define the class project and to oversee its implementation.
At our 45th reunion in 2013 the class presented a cheque of $103.068 to Dr. Campbell, President and Vice-Chancellor, to formally launch the scholarship. With the committeeʼs work completed, ongoing stewardship of the award lies with our Class Officers.
Legacy project committee members present a cheque of $103,068 to Robert M. Campbell, President and Vice-Chancellor at our 45th reunion.
Legacy Committee: (l-r) Brian Bell, Maurice Tugwell, Kathleen McMullen, Nancy (Waller) Cutler, Pam Steeves Bowman, Nancy Grainger Robb, Robert Campbell
2015 - 2016 Recipient
Heather Richards, Ontario
The Class of 68,
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself; my name is Heather Richards and I am honored to be chosen as a recipient for the “Wonderful Scholarship” this year. I would like to extend my sincere appreciation for your continued support to Mount Allison University and its students.
Academics have always been a huge part of my life and having the opportunity to continue my education at a first class University like Mount Allison is truly a dream come true. I am currently in my first year here at Mount A where I hope to study Chemistry, with intentions of moving onto Physiotherapy or Medicine.
Along with my busy 5 course schedule, I am proud to say that I am a
member of the 2015/16 Mount Allison Womenʼs Varsity Hockey Team. Hockey is a passion of mine that started at the young age of 4 and to
this day continues to grow.
I am loving the time spent here at Mount Allison thus far. The welcoming atmosphere and endless support has made the transition from home seem effortless.
My dreams are becoming a reality thanks to people like yourselves. I can assure you that your generosity does not go unnoticed.
Once again I would like to thank you for supporting Mount Allison and its students. I can only hope that one day I will be as “Wonderful” as you!
2014 -2015 Recipient
Katherine Chamandy, Quebec
Dear Class of ʼ68
I would like to extend my sincere thanks for the financial support your class has provided me with this academic year. Since my arrival at Mount Allison University, I have discovered the meaning of a university experience through the community of learning and support.
I am in my first year of studies at Mount Allison with second-year standing.
As a geography and history major, I am also exploring minors in religious studies and gender studies. I am a peer educator with SHARE, the Sexual Harassment and Assault Response and Education service. This year, we have piloted a Walk Home program, accompanying students home late at night to ensure their safety.
I am the intramural representative for my residence and have a position as a Residence Assistant in Windsor Hall next year.
Thank you for investing in my education and my future
Reunion 2018 – Our 50th!!
It is hard to believe that 2018 marks 50 years since we stood on the stage in Convocation Hall and received our degree from Mount Allison University!
So much living has been done since then and so many memories of our time at Mount A remain.
Mark May 2018 on your calendar now for this very special reunion and plan to attend. Connect with old friends, reminisce, and play catch-up.
Bookmark this page and stay tuned for updates and plans as we get closer to the date!
