75th Anniversary

In October 2007, more than 400 alumni, parents, and friends converged on Bennington's campus to celebrate 75 years of pioneering education. Faculty, students, and alumni offered a variety of workshops, and Helen Frankenthaler '49 exhibited her rarely seen sculptures. In her keynote address, President Coleman shared how Bennington is leading the way for a new liberal arts.

Based on your feedback, the on-campus reunion is held every three years so that alumni can celebrate milestones with classes clustered around their graduating year. In the intervening years, we offer robust regional events around the country. Please contact us if you know of a great space for an event or if you would like to host or help plan a gathering in your area.
