Come Home on Founder's Day
Posted 05/01/2017 11:57AM

ALUMNI AND FRIENDS RETURN TO CAMPUS MAY 20

Another spring has rolled around, and that means it is almost time for Founder's Day.

Celebrated on the Saturday closest to Stephen Girard's birthday (May 20, 1750), Founder's Day is an important weekend for Girard College alumni, current students and other members of the extended Girard family. This year Founder's Day is actually on Mr. Girard's birthday.

The weekend includes a golf tournament on Friday morning and an alumni dinner Friday evening. Saturday is a day full of various events and activities for alumni and their families. These events include a wreath ceremony, an alumni Chapel, lunch, buggy rides with "Stephen Girard," alumni athletic competitions, a fun kids fair and much more.

Girard students will be in attendance, a tradition everyone enjoys!

Old friends reconnect, and alumni get a close look at today's Girard College.
