Class of ’67 Zoom Sessions Continue!

Now entering their third year, the Class of ’67 Zoom Sessions continue to delight classmates with their intellectual breadth and rigor.  The sessions were originally conceived as a way of maintaining class cohesiveness during the Covid pandemic when face-to-face encounters were not possible, especially with classmates scattered all over the country.

Fortunately, all of these Zoom sessions were recorded.  If you go to our Video Page, you will find the links to each video.
