On Friday, Jan. 25, the Class of ’22 participated in Twilight Hour, inducting the year as alumni of Gettysburg College.

The students walked from the CUB Ballroom through a path of lights held by students, faculty, and staff to Pennsylvania Hall, where the Class of ’22 officers gifted President Janet Morgan Riggs ’77 with their class book.

Led by the Four Scores a Capella group, the first-years serenaded Riggs with the alma mater. This day marked, for many first-years, their first time singing the alma mater, and Riggs’ last time receiving it as President of Gettysburg College at the Twilight Hour.

To walk along the path with the Class of ’22 and here the alma mater, watch The Gettysburgian’s Facebook livestream:
