Class of 1967 Memories

  • Distinguished service recipients from the Class of 1967 in engineering. — Robert Beran ’67, PhD’72
  • I was involved in ROTC on campus and later became a commander in the navy. Although there were very liberal movements happening on campus at the time — and overall discontent with the military institution as a whole — I never experienced rude or disrespectful comments on campus while wearing my uniform. There was a mutual respect, even in the wake of disagreement, which was not present in other areas such as California. — Arne Peterson ’67
  • Loved Art History 101 with Professor Watrous ’31, MA’33, PhD’39. He was a great lecturer and opened up a new-found interest in art history. — Cameron Roberts ’67, MD’71
  • My friends and I put soap in the big fountain in the middle of campus, and there were bubbles all over the place the whole evening! — Joanne Tondryk Harned White ’67
  • Skiing club helped me get through the cold winters! — Susan Toppel Polimeni Berman Lynn ’67
  • As a UW student, I loved Picnic Point. It was my favorite place to walk, and I enjoyed seeing Lake Mendota! — Anonymous
  • Dr. Middleton served as a great inspiration to me. He was the UW medical school. He would meet with every medical student to catch up and give advice. He pulled every student aside at least once to give advice on internships and the future. — Anonymous
