Bennington through the Decades
Decade after decade, the nation's leading thinkers and innovators have flocked to Bennington to redefine what's possible. Every person who has set foot on this campus is a part of that legacy. This collection includes photos from Bennington's archive and our alumni. Submit your own photos by emailing them to

These pictures are being gathered as part of the Penny Wilson '45 Challenge for Campus Renewal. Penny (pictured above) has graciously and generously issued a challenge this year: when the College raises $2 million dollars to support the Penny Wilson ’45 Campus Renewal Challenge and when 2,500 donors contribute to the Bennington Fund, before June 30, 2012, Penny will make a gift of $1 million. All to invest in Bennington’s inspiring campus.

It is our collective support that preserves the remarkable history layered in each and every space at Bennington. Be a part of that history. Be one of the 1,149 donors we need by June 30 to receive Penny's gift. Participate today at
