Reunion 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. More details will be shared as they become available; check back for additional information from the college.

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!


Mark your calendars for our 50th Reunion, June 5-7, 2020, and make your travel plans now!

Weekend Schedule

Reunion Weekend officially begins around 10 a.m. on Friday morning and continues through noon on Sunday. Visit our Class of 1970 Reunion Weekend Schedule to get an idea of what you won’t want to miss. Meanwhile, bookmark and visit this page often for updates about this milestone event.

Send Us Your Photos

Be sure to look through your files and send us both old and current photos. Photos may be used for a class slideshow or for Reunion promotion on social media. Submit your photos by uploading them to this class Google folder. A Google account is not required. Make sure to label them with the name you used while at Davidson. Photos will be moved to a secure location on the Davidson server and shared with the Reunion committee.

Quips and Cranks

As a part of our 50th Reunion celebration, a Class of 1970 Quips and Cranks Yearbook: 50th Anniversary Edition will be published. At the end of January all classmates should have received an email from Meno Publishing asking classmates to complete a questionnaire regarding personal information to be included on their page in the booklet. All classmates, regardless if they are able to attend Reunion Weekend, are encouraged to submit their online questionnaire by March 27 and upload up to three pictures all for inclusion in the booklet. The email from Meno Publishing was sent to each classmate with a personal "sign in" link and classmates are asked to not share that link. If classmates did not receive the email please check the "junk" mailbox and/or contact Mark Harding with Meno Publishing at Additionally, if a classmate feels for any reason Davidson does not have an up-to-date email address, please contact to be added to the system.

The booklets will be handed out to those attending Reunion Weekend and will be mailed to classmates who complete a questionnaire but are not at the weekend. An online version will also be published for all to see. Only information submitted by classmates will be included.

As an example, and to encourage submissions, please check out the Class of 1969 Quips and Cranks: 50th Anniversary Edition. 

See Who’s Coming
