  1. FYI—you have pictures of 1990 pull team and 1992 homecoming court in the direct mail and on this blog that is supposed to celebrate 30 years for the class of 1991.

    1. You are correct. Our apologies, we intended to celebrate the era of the time that the Class of 1990 and 1991 were on campus, not specific events. Do you have photos that we can add to the collection? Feel free to email
