Every five years, each Davidson class celebrates its reunion.
The focus of Davidson's reunion program is to encourage as many class members as possible to connect with the college, one another and strengthen their commitment to Davidson through the class gift.
Reunion volunteers are the backbone of these landmark celebrations and make the weekend happen. They take the lead on building attendance and generating enthusiasm during their milestone year. A successful class reunion is achieved by:
- Engaging and reconnecting alumni with their classmates and the college both throughout the planning process and implementation of Reunion.
- Encouraging alumni to reminisce about their time as a student as well as learn about the Davidson of today.
- Educating alumni through intentional programming, highlighting college leadership, current and retired faculty and peers.
- Provide an opportunity to reevaluate their philanthropic relationship with Davidson and to strengthen their commitment through the Reunion Class Gift.
Want to be a Reunion Volunteer?
The Offices of Alumni and Family Engagement and Annual Giving are seeking alum volunteers (committee members/chairs or class ambassadors) to help with Reunion efforts for their class. These individuals will assist with encouraging classmates to engage with one another, sharing input on class-specific events, inviting classmates to attend Reunion programs and fundraising towards the class gift. The committee will begin its work in late 2021 and will continue through Reunion in June 2022. If you are interested in serving as a reunion volunteer, or have suggestions of other classmates who would make good volunteers, please complete this brief survey or contact your reunion chairs listed on your class website.
