Registration continues until midday Monday, Sept. 12, for the Andover Newton Fall Reunion, Sept. 22-24.

Believing that the true legacy of the Hill is less about place and more about people, the Reunion Committee has invited several alumni/ae or other ANTS-associated individuals to offer short reflections and dialogue on a topic of their interest and expertise on Friday. This is a great way to see how colleagues have lived out all they’ve learned!
