ReUnion is a time for all alumni/ae, students, and friends of the Seminary to reconnect with one another and with the institution. Returning alumni/ae enjoy meals together with faculty, a reception with the President, and time for worshiping as a community. All of these activities are woven together with high-caliber academic programming to create a very special experience back on campus.
Special attention is given to the reunion of the 50th-anniversary class of 1969, as well as 25th Anniversary Class of 1994 and the 10th Anniversary Class of 2009. The classes of 1968, 1970, 1993, 1995, 2008 and 2010 are also welcome to attend.
50th Anniversary ReUnion festivities begin on the afternoon of Wednesday, October 2nd, include a full day of programming on Thursday, October 3rd and Friday, October 4th, and conclude with breakfast on Saturday, October 5th.
25th & 10th Anniversary ReUnion festivities begin with Pub on the evening of Thursday, October 3rd, include a full day of programming on Friday, October 4th, and conclude with breakfast on Saturday, October 5th.
