Family Weekend, held the last weekend in September this year, featured WESeminars, athletic contests, and many delighted Wesleyan alumni parents. They lined up with their Wesleyan students on Denison Terrace, along with President Michael S. Roth ’78. The Wesleyan Cardinal was also on hand to celebrate the latest generation of Wesleyan spirit.

Among the Homecoming events scheduled, family and friends of the late Joseph G. Lynch ’47, GP ’07, ’14, gathered to toast and celebrate the life of Wesleyan’s #1 fan. “The Best Seat in the House” above Andrus Field on the deck outside the Daniel Family Common in the Usdan University Center is dedicated in his memory.
