About the Class of 1967 ...
We came of age in the Sixties -- a tumultuous time. We were a men-only class but enjoyed seeing the ladies from Marywood, studying to be nurses, on the University of Scranton campus. We numbered 400+ and attended classes in buildings separated by a city thoroughfare (Linden Avenue).
We lived in dorms carrying the names of Lynott, Dennis Edward, Nevils, Fitch, and Driscoll. TV sets started showing up in dorms rooms during our junior year. During our senior year, a Scranton team played in a club football match against arch-rival Kings College -- the first football game at "The U" since NCAA football went away in the '50s. We're sure we attended commencement, but, alas, the years have taken away memories of the keynote speaker and what he -- or she -- said to us.
Every five years or so since that commencement exercise, we've gathered for reunions. We did so in June 2007 when we marked our 40th reunion. Our class turnout set a record, we're told, for the largest number of 40-year alums returning for an alumni weekend; 34 men attended Friday and/or Saturday events. At the same time, the Class of '67 led all other reunion classes in percent of participation in the U of S annual giving drive with 34 percent of our grads contributing.
