The Class of 1980 – 40th Reunion

Click here to register for Homecoming and your reunion.

We are excited to celebrate the class of 1980 during virtual Homecoming & Reunion Week, Oct. 12-18, 2020. While we all prefer for it to be on-campus and in person with hugs, handshakes and toasts, we can still reconnect and celebrate together, virtually. You can check out the full schedule of events here.

Please note that the virtual celebration of our reunion this year is not a replacement for an in-person experience in the future. We hope this event will be an opportunity to commemorate 40 years together as a class while building excitement and anticipation for when we will be able to celebrate our reunion on campus, in the future, with the Class of 1981.

Whether or not you are able to join us, we ask you to mark this reunion by giving back.
