“There is nothing to compare to standing on the spot where history began, accompanied by Professor Crenshaw, who connected the past to the present so very well. Lifetime learning indeed!” – Mark ’65, P’91 and Lisa Edmiston P’91 (ISSUE 1 2009)

“I enjoyed the energy of the Wesleyan group and how heterogeneous we were, with alumni from the ’50s, ’60s,’70s, ’80s and beyond–all with unique world views, which provided interesting ongoing discussions.

“We had time on the boat trip to talk, to think about the discussion and then come back to the conversation. Everyone did a lot of reading. It felt as though we were back at Wesleyan again. It was an enlivening, enthusiastic, intellectual atmosphere.” – Dr. Joseph Buchman ’53 (ISSUE 4 2006)
