AAVC Hosts Legacy Reception at Freshman Parents Weekend

Every fall, Vassar hosts Freshman Parents Weekend — a weekend designed to introduce new Vassar parents to the campus. But for some, it is a reunion of sorts. There are 48 legacy freshman this year, with a parent or parents who also attended Vassar. AAVC welcomed these alumnae/i families to campus with a reception at the President’s House. Twenty-two families attended and enjoyed meeting President Hill and getting to know fellow alumnae/i parents and new students. But it was the display of photos of the legacy freshmen paired with their parent’s Vassar yearbook picture that most amused and delighted the families! In addition to the Legacy Reception, the weekend offered faculty research presentations, a student life panel, and job internship information session hosted by the Career Development Office.
