Reunion 2020 Update

Due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns, Reunion 2020 was celebrated virtually. Throughout the fall, several programs that typically highlight Reunion Weekend on campus were offered online. 

Virtual Class Gathering

Mark your calendar for Monday, November 9 at 7:30 p.m. ET for a Class of 1980 Virtual Gathering. More details to come but for now we ask that you save the date. Don't miss a chance to gather with classmates prior to the Thanksgiving holiday and step back from 2020 for an hour of fellowship and sharing!

Connect with Classmates

If you are on Facebook, join the Davidson College Class of 1980 group to communicate with classmates.

Additionally, be sure to join the Class of 1980 group in Davidson Connect, a networking portal launched in May 2020. This resource is designed to connect our community by bringing together multiple platforms into one hub where students and alumni around the world can connect. Sign into the system to find an alumni mentor, view jobs and internships, build relationships with classmates others who share your same identities or areas of interest, and connect with fellow students and alumni in your industry. 

Class Gift

The Class of 1980 achieved 53.38% participation and raised $1,158,157 in honor of this milestone reunion.
