The 2020 Reunions were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 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. Given that Homecoming is the time when alumni gather to celebrate their reunions, we will move the following reunion classes to May 21 &22, 2021:

  • Class of 1975
  • Class of 1980
  • Class of 1985
  • Class of 1990
  • Class of 1995
  • Class of 2000
  • Class of 2005
  • Class of 2015
  • Class of 2020 (Reunion Zero)

For alumni returning on May 21 & 22, 2021, a survey was sent to those classes about their interest in participating in an in-person reunion. We want to ensure that a significant number of alumni from each reunion class would be able and willing to attend so that we can make the weekend worthwhile for everyone. For those who took the survey, thank you! Based on the results, each class showed a significant interest in having their gathering in May! 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 following reunion classes will be postponed until October 2, 2021:

  • Class of 1955
  • Class of 1960
  • Class of 1965
  • Class of 1970
