The annual Founders Day activities had special meaning for alumni this year, as the February event marked the start of a yearlong celebration of the Alumni Association’s 150th anniversary.

Two alums recognized at the convocation as honorary degree recipients were actor Sean Hayes, above, and educator J. Michael Adams ’69, as well as other award winners.

Enjoy photos of Founders Day, including the annual bell ringing ceremony, the Alumni Association luncheon and the alumni award dinner on STATEside.
