Alumni Resources

Part of the 1984 class at the 40th NHFQ reunion in 2012

There is a large active network of Natural History Field Quarter alumni. The endowments that support both the Ken Norris Center for Natural History and the current NHFQ class were spearheaded by a dedicated group of NHFQ alumni.  An even larger group of alumni contributed to Field Quarter's endowed student scholarship fund.  The alumni group has stayed in contact through past reunion gatherings, including a 20 year reunion in the early 1990s, a 40 year reunion in 2012, and a 45 year reunion in 2017.  They also stay in contact through quarterly newsletters and an active facebook page.  If you're an alumni and want to be added to our alumni newsletter list or to our facebook page, please contact Norris Center director Chris Lay at

Since 2015, each NHFQ class has kept an illustrated day-by-day blog of their experience. You can check out their adventures here:
