Class of 1963

Press play to view photos from the 50th Reunion.
To all the members of the Class of 1963, welcome to the Old Guard! This prestigious honor has been bestowed upon you recognizing your commitment to Washington & Jefferson College.

To celebrate this honor, classmates and their guests celebrated together during Commencement Weekend, May 17-18, 2013. They enjoyed campus tours, cocktail receptions and the Commencement Ceremony together.

At the ceremony, they were officially inducted into the W&J Old Guard by President Tori Haring-Smith. They celebrated by leading the crowd in a rousing rendition of Whichi Coax.

In celebration of the 50th reunion, 40 percent of the class gave more than $640,000 in support of the College.
A portion of these funds established the Class of 1963 Endowed Scholarship Fund.

This endowed scholarship will serve as a legacy of the class of 1963 – creating a permanent gift that will help W&J students both now and into the future.
