Founders' Day Weekend


Join us April 16–18, 2015 for the final Founders' Day Weekend of The Second Century Celebration, an opportunity to reconnect with professors, classmates and current students. 

The weekend offers a wide range of activities on the Hilltop, including the celebration of another great milestone: the 50th anniversary of the Meadows Museum. Enjoy a day of special Meadows programs as well as exhibitions documenting the history of the Museum and highlighting the Abelló Collection, one of the world's most renowned private collections never before seen in the United States. 

This year's event occurs during the centennial celebration of the Year of the Student, which is being commemorated throughout 2015.
