reunion weekend 2020 - postponed until May 22, 2021

After Homecoming and Reunion Weekend 2020 was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Office of Alumni Relations decided to send a survey to those classes who were affected.  The survey asked about their interest in participating in an in-person reunion this spring. Based on the results, we will offer a Spring Term Reunion for the Classes of 1975, 1980, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010, 2015, and 2020 on Saturday, May 22, 2021.   The Classes of 1955, 1960, 1965, and 1971 will be held on Saturday, October 2, 2021 (see below).

Plans are underway to help you experience your reunion during a spring day on campus. What will that look like? You'll have to wait and see but we're sure you won't be disappointed!  Here's a hint ..... try your hand at wiffle ball or take a hike to Budda's Belly (or any other name it was called during your time).  We're planning a great day for you back on campus!

We look forward to gathering again but will monitor the pandemic status. Watch this page and your inbox for updates.  If the pandemic does not allow us to be in person, then the Spring Term Reunion will be canceled and will not be postponed to a later date.  

For more details on your reunion, please visit the Reunion Page and select your class year.
