Every year, we host hundreds of events, but some are special. Learn more about our largest traditional events and what makes them so treasured.



It’s the best day of the year as we celebrate all the hard work WashU students completed in the classroom and welcome them to our worldwide network of alumni.


Founders Day

Founders Day is an opportunity to reflect upon the university’s many accomplishments—and the people who made them possible. This annual event honors WashU’s distinguished alumni, outstanding faculty, and most treasured friends.


Reunion at WashU

Every few years, alumni are invited to come home to St. Louis and reunite with old friends. Whether it’s your 1st or 50th reunion, see what’s changed on campus and what’s stayed the same; visit your old hangouts; and remember all that makes WashU special for you.
