Contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org today! We have the resources to contact your classmates and we can get the word out that your reunion year is coming up. Team up with a few of your fellow graduates to spread the word.
Save the date, time and venue
We have established two annual times for our reunions: Alumni Reunion Weekend and 50th Class Reunion/50+ Weekend.
Alumni Reunion Weekend is our summer reunion time where all graduates from 1952 to today are welcome back. The entire weekend is planned for you and includes an Alumni Art Show, tours of campus, a Buffalo Chapter Alumni Council Open Meeting and a Boat Cruise!
The 50th Class Reunion/50+ Weekend is our fall reunion time where classes celebrating 50 years or more are welcome to return to campus. The 50th class is gifted a reunion by the Institutional Advancement division in honor of their milestone anniversary.
Decide who to invite
Do you want to include fellow graduate from a particular year, course, club or residence hall?
Will you invite spouses/partners, children, former professors?
Contact us so that we work together to plan. We ask that you keep the office updated with any new contact information you may find for your fellow graduates. Any new contact information we gather from attendees of the event will be updated in our database to ensure we have accurate data for your next reunion!
Put together your program
Set up a meeting with a representative from the Institutional Advancement division to help facilitate the details that will make your reunion special.
Letters, emails and event promotion
There are so many ways to reach out to the people you want to see! Our office provides:
Reunion letters go out to all invitees.
Electronic communication including emails and Voice articles promoting the event.
Social media posts further spread the word
An official Reunion Invitation (including the finalized program, reply card, accommodation details, etc.)
You can help by sending a personal letter to classmates, an email or by placing a phone call is to stimulate further interest. Tell them how many have shown interest (you could even list names) and that the more people attend, the better it will be.
After the reunion
You may want to send out an email/letter to thank all those who attended. Please ask them to keep in touch with the Institutional Advancement division and let us know when they change address. This will help if you ever want to another reunion in the future, too! Look online and in college publications for post event photos and articles.
