Reunion 2010: On the move

Author: Kim Claeys


What could be better than a two-day reunion on campus with your classmates?  A four-day reunion!  That's what this year's reunion classes can look forward to in conjunction with various opportunities for fun, learning and family time.  This year's reunion will be held June 3-6 on the beautiful ND campus.

By partnering with the Alumni Association, the Graduate Alumni Relations Office is able to offer our alumni a variety of experiences not available at past reunions.  Alumni attending the reunion will have the opportunity to "live" on campus for the extended weekend, eat in the dining halls, attend various seminars presented by alumni and faculty and enjoy late night refreshments at the Graduate Alumni tent, as well as many other activities.  The summer reunion also is celebrating its 13th year of children's programming.  Children ages 4-17 can participate in activities from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

"By moving the Reunion to the summer, we are able to offer our alumni programming that we could not offer in the fall.  They will also have the opportunity to meet and network with other Notre Dame alumni, including undergraduate alumni and law school alumni.  We believe this change will allow our returning alumni to reconnect more closely with the University," said Kim Patton, Director Graduate Alumni Relations.

Graduate Business Alumni still will have several opportunities to convene as a collective group of business school master programs graduates.  The College of Business and the Graduate Alumni Relations Office will host a mass, a reception and two dinners exclusively for graduate business alumni.  These business school events will allow alumni time to socialize with their classmates in a more intimate atmosphere.

The Graduate Alumni Relations Office will be sending out more information to Reunion 2010 classes in the next few weeks.  To learn more about Reunion, please visit the Alumni Association's Reunion page.

Members of the classes of 1970, 1975, 1980, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005 and 2009 are encouraged to contact the Graduate Alumni Relations office if interested in serving as a Reunion Class Representative.  Class representatives act as liaisons between the Graduate Alumni Office and their classmates.  Primarily, representatives are asked to contact their classmates to invite them to attend reunion, answer reunion questions, and plan any meeting places or extracurricular events if their class so chooses.  To volunteer to serve as a Reunion Representative, please email
