It’s hard to believe, but our 25th Reunion is now in the rearview mirror.  An incredible success, it was great to see approximately half the class return to “The Fairest College.”  Here’s hoping that this website can help us continue the camaraderie as we head toward our 30th.  To unlock the secured sections, including the 25th Reunion Photo Gallery, you will need your username and password.  Don’t remember them?  Never got them?  Your first stop is here.

Once you have your password, you will also be able to read the Class Notes three months before they appear in Amherst magazine as well as all the Notes since our 20th Reunion.  You can even contribute content of your own.  To post a story or photo, log in (look in the upper right hand corner of this screen) and click the appropriate link to upload your image or text.  It's so easy, even a Williams grad could do it.

Other ways to connect with classmates include the Class of 1987 Facebook group and the Class of 1987 listserv

Finally, the Class Notes in Amherst  magazine always need material for the next issue. Send your news to our intrepid Class Secretaries Tabitha Estabrook Claydon and Keith Laezza at: With all these resources at our disposal, there is no excuse not to stay in touch.
