Class reunions provide an opportunity to return to campus to connect with friends, see new facilities, enjoy special events and relive memories of years gone by.

Members of classes celebrating their 10th, 15th, 20th, 25th, 30th, 35th, 40th and 45th reunion year are invited to gatherings the Saturday of Fall Festival. Reunions are at various locations on campus, though some hosts invite their classmates to their homes.

Members of classes celebrating their 50th, 55th or 60th anniversary gather for special reunion dinners on the Saturday of Alumni Weekend. Staff members host a Heritage Class meal for those observing a 65th anniversaries and more. Classes sit together at the Alumni Banquet, where special recognition is given to the Golden Anniversary class.

In addition to class reunions organized by the Alumni Council, individual academic departments organize coffees for their majors at Fall Festival, some in conjunction with lectures by departmental alumni.

To view a current list of your classmates, go to the Alumni Directory and search by class year only (no names in the search boxes). Complete lists as well as other reunion information may also be requested from the alumni office.
