Due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns, Reunion 2021 will be celebrated virtually. Focused programming will be held during the first two weeks in June 2021, while virtual back-to-school Classes highlighting reunion alumni will take place throughout the spring. In recognition of this milestone, Davidson is also committed to brining the Class of 1971 back to campus for a 50th Reunion celebration, when it is safe to do.

Quips & Cranks

As a part of our 50th Reunion celebration, a Class of 1971 Quips and Cranks Yearbook: 50th Anniversary Edition will be published. An April email from Meno Publishing was sent 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 June 30 and upload up to three personal 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 mark@meno-recollections.com. Additionally, if a classmate feels for any reason Davidson does not have an up-to-date email address, please contact reunion@davidson.edu to be added to the system.

An online version will also be published for all to see. Hard copies will be distributed to classmates at a later date. Only information submitted by classmates will be included.

As an example, and to encourage submissions, please check out the Class of 1970 Quips and Cranks: 50th Anniversary Edition. Use password "Davidson_C70".

Relive our college memories and put names with faces by reviewing the Quips and Cranks from your time at Davidson through the Davidson College online library archives.

Connect with Classmates

Be sure to join the Class of 1971 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 others who share your same identities or areas of interest, and connect with fellow students and alumni in your industry. 

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 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 volunteers.
