Anderson Center, Patio, Alumni Way, and various classrooms
The Fall Fest is a fun celebration of the Hamline community! Students, alumni, families, faculty, staff, friends, and neighbors are invited to campus for an array of activities—live music, lawn games and Frisbee golf, treats, and even a bounce house, balloon artists and caricaturists for the kids. The fun extends across campus with behind-the-scenes tours exploring Hamline’s history and hands-on learning.
In case of rain, some activities will remain available. Some will move or be cancelled. Please visit www.hamline.edu/alumniweekend or www.facebook.com/hamlinealumni for up-to-date information.
