October 27, 2009 Dear WC classmate, Can you believe that we only graduated a few months ago?

I hope you are all doing well and are not too let down by the economic conditions around us. Even though we have moved on from Washington College, life here is still thriving. There have definitely been many changes here at Washington College since we have left. Sadly, the temporary dining facility will no longer be in use. They are going to open Hodson Hall in November. It is a spectacular addition to campus! The new student center will give students hours of entertainment away from their exams and paper. The Daniel Z. Gibson Center for the Arts opened its doors to students and faculty on the first day of classes. It is an amazingly fresh look to the cater walk. And the final phase of the Alumni House renovation will include building an entertainment porch and construction should begin in early October. Not even a year after we’ve graduated and we already have new buildings to give us a reason to come back. Congratulations to many of the athletes in our graduating class! Brittany Lambert was named an ESPN the Magazine At-large Academic all American for the second straight year. Lacrosse player, Jimmy Kielek was awarded an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship. And both swim teams were awarded Team Scholar All American status for the Spring 2009 by the College Swimming Coaches Association. I encourage you all to come back to Washington College or to attend an alumni event! Whether you attend the holiday gatherings in December, Birthday Ball in February, or Reunion 2010 on May 14, 15 & 16, Washington College would be happy to have you. Be sure to check out wcalumnet.com for details on upcoming events. While on the alumni site, don’t forget to submit a Class Note to let all of us know what you have been up to. You can submit your news and photographs online or by emailing classnotes@washcoll.edu. Sincerely,

Lydia Bull, Class Representative 2009 PS. Check out our new class website! Send in your photo and bio to Judie Barroll @ jbarroll2@washcoll.edu. This will become our virtual yearbook!
