The 2020 Reunions were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic to a later date. A survey was sent to those classes 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.   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!  The classes of 1955, 1960, 1965, and 1970 will come back to campus on October 2 during our regular Homecoming and Reunion Weekend.

We look forward to gathering again but will monitor the pandemic status and adjust plans as circumstances necessitate. Watch this page and your inbox for updates.
