50th Reunion & Patrick Henry Society

Induction into the Patrick Henry Society is a special way of honoring our alumni for their 50 years of steadfast loyalty to their alma mater. On April 24, 1986, the Patrick Henry Society at Hampden-Sydney College was formed by the 50th reunion Class of 1936. Members of the Class of 1936 believed that the name Patrick Henry Society gave dignity to this distinguished band of brothers and would be a most fitting way to honor all graduates in their 50th anniversary year and those who had passed through these gates in years prior.

One of the many benefits of the Patrick Henry Society event is the annual opportunity to renew friendships with classmates. The Class of 1969 celebrates its 50th Reunion on June 7-9, 2019. All classes having celebrated their 50th Reunion are invited to help welcome the Class of 1969 into their ranks.

Highlights from last year's reunion

  • Howard Eckstein '90 and his band The New Outliers - with special guest Dr. Ken Townsend - brought down the (White)House on Friday night!
  • President Larry Stimpert was able to spend time with each class and appeared at multiple events throughout the weekend.  He very much enjoyed speaking to the members of each class and their families!
  • The Class of 1967 made a significant legacy gift in honor of their 50th reunion, totaling $4,181,510.30. Thanks to the Class of 1967 for leading the way in what was a truly remarkable reunion giving effort. The primary focus of these class gifts was scholarship.
    This year's reunion class gifts totaled $5,556,847.70 in gifts to H-SC.
  • Beautiful works of art were created during the Wine & Design class on Saturday as each participant created their own masterpiece of the H-SC Bell Tower.
  • Faculty members, including, Dr. Bill Porterfield, Dr. Alex Werth, and Dr. Mary Prevo taught classes or highlighted academic programs that brought alumni "back to class". Alumni had the chance to learn about wartime tales of H-SC, toxic chemicals, performing digital anatomic dissection, and/or tour the College's Observatory, newly renovated Brinkley (Wilson) Hall and the Viar Christ Center for Fine Arts.
  • Saturday night's Band at The Bell Tower brought alumni of all ages together to dance the night away. 
  • Putt-Putt at the Library and the After Hours Social at Bortz Library were exceptionally well received.
  • Most importantly, friendships were rekindled over class dinners, in hospitality rooms, and across many other locations on campus where friends and family gathered.
