Class of 1963: Amherst College's First Class Web Pages!

Welcome to the Class of 1963

The Amherst adventure continues. More than 50 Years ago, 250 classmates spent four years of their lives together in close proximity. Now the Internet makes possible a new connection with each other. These web pages are dedicated to encouraging that connection.

Class Notes

The most recent Class Notes are now posted:  View the Spring Class Notes and the newly pre-published Summer 2015 Class Notes.

A reminder that -- due to space constraints in the published Amherst magazine -- the Class Notes here on the web are much richer and more detailed.  Kudos to Neale for his continuing energy with your storytelling!

Strategic Plan and Alumni Relations

The Class of 1963 has been in the forefront of an effort to enhance the importance of Alumni Relations at Amherst College. Following a meeting with President Biddy Martin during our 50th Reunion, a Class Committee has been working hard to bring the issue to the attention of the entire Amherst Community.

The College has just issued a draft Strategic Plan for review.  We wish to collect Class comments to provide some organized alumni input to that review.   Click here to review the Strategic Plan, to view the Class Committee's findings and to join us with your input!
