This is your reunion, and therefore we want you to plan it.

If you are interested in joining the organizing committee or would like to suggest who you think would be a good member of the committee, email us.

In addition to the preparation for the reunion, we have a number of opportunities for you to help us out at the reunion. Please sign up to let us know where you can help!

2020: 10-Year Reunion (Years 34, 35, 36 & 37) – August 09 - 13, 2020

August 09 – 13, 2020

The planning has begun and we’ve already heard from many of your fellow Year 34, 35, 36 & 37 alumni who are looking forward to returning to campus to reminisce and reconnect.

As you will see, we have made changes since you last saw the Reunion Schedule. Indeed, since 2015, when we held our first 40 Year Reunion, we have been inviting four cohorts at a time, instead of two or three. As a result, some of the dates initially scheduled have shifted and different groupings have been created. This is an attempt to encourage you to not only reunite with old friends but to make new ones. And, it gives you not just one but two opportunities to attend milestone reunions with different sets of classmates and it helps us maximize our impact and use of campus facilities. Finally, you will also notice that Saturdays are no longer part of the schedule, as they are now used throughout the summer for revenue-generating activities such as weddings, which have become quite popular given the beauty of our campus.

The 10 Year Reunion this summer for YR 34, 35, 36 & 37 will kick off on Sunday, with a Campus Tour and a Welcome Reception. Monday will start a full schedule of events, yet to be organized by you (the alumni organizing committee) that will wrap up on the final full day, Wednesday, before everyone departs on Thursday.
