Class Reunions

Active Class Reunion Committees are critical in building interest among the class, planning special gatherings, and helping bridge the gap between your classmates and the Alumni and Parent Relations (APR) Office.

Class reunions occur each year at Alumni Weekend.

Class Reunion Committees have the support of the Alumni Weekend Committee and the alumni office works closely to ensure your class reunion fits the needs of your group, and is a wonderful celebration and return to campus.
