Alumni Banquet

Founded in 1894, the Bethel College Alumni Association has held annual banquets since 1896.

The association again invites all alumni and friends of the college to this longtime annual event.

The 2019 banquet is scheduled for 6–7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 8, in Jolliffe Auditorium in Memorial Hall, and is part of this year’s Alumni Heritage Weekend.

Following a delicious buffet meal, the program will include special recognition of the Golden Anniversary Class of 1969—which will walk into Memorial Hall together—and presentation of the 2019 Outstanding Alumnus and Distinguished Achievement awards to exceptional graduates. This year’s other reunion classes will also be recognized: 1964, 1959 and those in the Heritage Classes of 1954 and earlier years.

Reunion classes sit together at the banquet. Seating for others is open.

A reception with this year’s Alumni Association award recipients will follow the banquet.
