Fall 2012 Newsletter

A Message from the New President: Join us at Homecoming!
Welcome to the Association of Alumnae Newsletter, where we share our stories and keep you up-to-date on A of A news and events. In this issue, learn how regional Penn clubs are hosting unique events to welcome new alumni. Take a walk down memory lane as two alumnae reminisce about Freshman Camp in the ‘60s. Read a fascinating history about our first A of A President, Dr. Pauline Wolcott Spencer.
I'm honored to be serving as President for our centennial year! Please join us as we celebrate this milestone at Homecoming 2012 featuring Arts & Culture at Penn on October 27th. We will march proudly across the field at halftime of the football game, and then celebrate with a tree dedication on College Green at 3:30 pm followed by a reception at the E. Craig Sweeten House. I hope to see you there!
