GENESEO, N.Y. -- Geneseo alumna Larkin Kimmerer, the reunion planning chair from Class of 2009, presented a check to the college for $3,368,745 during the all-alumni luncheon during reunion weekend. Receiving the check on behalf of the college, Vice President for College Advancement Bill Brower told alumni, “Wow! These are very big numbers – thank you!”

The check represents hundreds of reunion alumni who have chosen to recognize this milestone in their relationship with Geneseo, in part through a gift to the college. The funds will support scholarships, research, international study, externships, academic departments, athletics and more -- the critical programs that define the educational experience at Geneseo and transform students’ lives.

A record 837 alumni, friends and guests returned for the annual reunion, which included special reunions for Arethusa sorority's 120th Reunion Anniversary and Phi Lambda Chi sorority's 50th Reunion Anniversary.
