A reception was held on October 5, 2013, in the Alumni House. The event celebrated the accomplishments of women who played varsity athletics, club sports, and students who have majored in physical education or movement science. The reception also supported an endowment fund in honor of Joan Boand and Patti Rowe, recognizing their pioneering contributions to advancement of sport and physical activity for women on campus.
