Glade & Glen is a newsletter just for alumni, about alumni. Within these pages, you will find stories, class notes, photos, and memorial biographies for your class year and beyond. Throughout these pages, we share stories, celebrate milestones and achievements, and honor the memory of those we have lost.
Issue 7 — Spring 2024

Cover of the Spring 2024 issue of Glade & GlenHello, Goodbye!

WE SAY GOODBYE and hello often at Hamilton. It is the nature of this campus to be seasonal and cyclical, and as much as we want to keep the people we love here forever, we also celebrate them when they choose a new adventure.

In that spirit, this issue of Glade & Glen is a recognition of comings and goings. We extend a huge thank you to our Alumni Council volunteers who have served us well. One last time, we express our gratitude to President David Wippman, who starts his next adventure in July. We also share some of the changes in our office on page 3, including a question-and-answer with new Director of Alumni & Parent Relations Jacke Jones. And, finally, we bring you the many beginnings and endings detailed in your class notes so you may recognize your friends’ big changes.

As I walk the campus, I see students showing signs of spring fever and anticipation of their own transitions, whether they are jumping into the world of work, enjoying summer vacation, or looking forward to a new academic year here in the fall. We wish everyone well no matter what the future holds.

And we also remind you: on the Hill, there are no true goodbyes. Like the seasons in their turn, we hope you will come back to us. Your influence will never leave us. In so many ways, departures are a sweet reminder that we gain so much whenever we can be together.
