Reunion 2020 Update

Due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns, Reunion 2020 will be celebrated virtually. Throughout the fall, several programs that typically highlight Reunion Weekend on campus will be offered online. These programs/virtual events will be open to all alumni and will highlight alumni in reunion classes. Check out the list of scheduled Back-to-School classes. Additional events and details will be shared as they become available; visit the website often for updated information.

We are pleased that an online format makes attendance possible for those who would have been unable to attend in person, and we are able to extend these festivities to a broader audience. We look forward to celebrating!
