Connect with Classmates

If you are on Facebook, join the Wildcats 72 group to communicate with classmates as we gear up for the celebration.

Also be sure to join the Class of 1972 group in Davidson Connect, a networking portal launched in May 2020. This resource is designed to connect our community by bringing together multiple platforms into one hub where students and alumni around the world can connect. Sign into the system to find an alumni mentor, view jobs and internships, build relationships with others who share your same identities or areas of interest, and connect with fellow students and alumni in your industry. 

Award Nominations

Consider which classmates deserve kudos at Reunion this year. Who goes above and beyond for Davidson or in their communities? We want to know about them! Nominations for deserving classmates are being accepted through January 14. 

Send Us Your Photos 

Be sure to look through your files and send us both old and current photos. Photos may be used for a slideshow or for Reunion promotion on social media. Submit your photos by uploading them to this Google Drive folder. A Google account is not required. Make sure to label them with the name you used while at Davidson. Photos will be moved to a secure location on the Davidson server and shared with the Reunion volunteers.

Quips & Cranks 

As a part of our 50th Reunion celebration, a Class of 1972 Quips and Cranks Yearbook: 50th Anniversary Edition will be published. In December 2021 all classmates should have received an email from Meno Publishing asking classmates to complete a questionnaire regarding personal information to be included on their page in the booklet. All classmates, regardless if they are able to attend Reunion Weekend, are encouraged to submit their online questionnaire by March 1 and upload up to three pictures all for inclusion in the booklet. The email from Meno Publishing was sent to each classmate with a personal "sign in" link and classmates are asked to not share that link. If classmates did not receive the email please check the "junk" mailbox and/or contact Mark Harding with Meno Publishing at mark@meno-recollections.com. Additionally, if a classmate feels for any reason Davidson does not have an up-to-date email address, please contact reunion@davidson.edu to be added to the system.

The booklets will be handed out to those attending Reunion Weekend and will be mailed to classmates who complete a questionnaire but are not at the weekend. An online version will also be published for all to see. Only information submitted by classmates will be included.

Enjoy the online 50th Anniversary Quips and Cranks Yearbooks for the last two classes as examples:
Class of 1971 - Password “DC_C1971”**
Class of 1970 - Password “Davidson_C70”**

You are also welcome to relive our college memories and put names with faces by reviewing the Quips and Cranks from our time at Davidson through the Davidson College online library archives.
