Alumni gatherings allow former students to reconnect and once again enjoy one another’s company. In addition to reunions and receptions both on campus and in various parts of the nation, a pilot Warrior Adventures program is being launched this summer. Similar activities will be planned in other areas where sufficient numbers of alumni are located. Visit the Warrior Adventures website for details on upcoming events. A limited number of spots are available for each event, so reserve your tickets today!
1970s Reunion. A reunion for the classes of 1970-1979 has been scheduled for July 26-28, 2013. The event will take place on campus. Brenda Phillips is coordinating the reunion. Contact Brenda at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer your services or to obtain more information. Also, be sure to visit the reunion website often.
Class Reunions. For decades, class reunions have been a popular highlight of summer on the campus of Rochester College. The availability of campus housing and the flexibility of family travel schedules have made the summer months an ideal time for such gatherings.
Each reunion is scheduled and organized by volunteers from specific classes. Reunions normally are not scheduled unless representatives from the class volunteer to coordinate an event. A college representative provides guidance, schedules campus facilities, and prepares mailings for reunion planners.
While some classes prefer to gather more frequently, reunions are recommended at ten-year increments (10, 20, 30, 40-year). The type and amount of formal activity varies from class to class. July is normally the best month for reunions. Dates are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. For best results and adequate notification of class members, planners should begin the process at least nine months before the scheduled event.
If you are interested in coordinating a reunion for your class, please contact Larry Stewart at email@example.com.
Special Reunions. Occasionally, various groups host special reunions for specific groups of alumni. For example, former choral singers of Paul Downey have participated in two reunions, former members of Autumn celebrated the group’s 25th anniversary with a reunion concert, classes from the 1960s gathered for a reunion with Fred Alexander and Paul Downey in Nashville, and former basketball players gather annually for an alumni game.
