Connect with Classmates

If you are on Facebook, join the Davidson College Class of 1977 group to communicate with classmates as we gear up for the celebration.

Also be sure to join the Class of 1977 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. Make sure to label all photos with the name you used while at Davidson. Classmates have two options for submitting photos:
 

Mail originals- Attention: Bill Burkholder, 3863 Waterview Road, High Point, NC 27265

A note from Bill Burkholder re physical photos: I prefer to work from original slides, prints, and negatives, if they are from before 2005 or so. I have a professional grade digitizing setup that yields high resolution images tailored to video panning and zooming. If people have physical media and are willing to ship them to me, I will ship them back to their owners, along with digitized copies of any that get used. 

Submit your photos by uploading them to this Google Drive Folder.- A Google account is not required. 

A note from Bill Burkholder re digital photos: Newer images from digital cameras and smartphones work best as original, unedited, high resolution files (at least 3000x2000 pixels). The larger the files, the better. JPEG file size has no exact correlation to image size in pixels. Also, “dpi” and “PPI” have no important meaning in video. Only pixel dimensions count. The more there are, the more I can zoom into or pan across the image. I’ll adjust them within the limits of what is there, for best contrast, color, brightness, and horizon lines.
