Reunion at Thurtene Carnival will be packed with events on campus and around St. Louis, but there are a few signature Reunion experiences you won’t want to miss, like the Welcome Back Party, the Alumni BBQ on the East End of Danforth Campus, and your Class of 2009 Party! We’re busy working on a full schedule, so check back in early 2024 to read about all of the receptions, tours, and events we have planned. See a list of those planning to attend.
Class of 2009 Party
Have a night filled with laughs and good friends with the class of 2019 at your 15th reunion class party at Work and Leisure. This non-traditional event space, located in trendy Midtown, is a 5,000 sq. ft. venue that offers bocce ball and shuffleboard —along with a DJ booth—in an industrial-style space. Enjoy an open bar with delicious cocktails, gourmet food stations, and fun photo opportunities.
Reunion class gift
At WashU, we believe in the power of tradition, community, and the transformative impact of education. Your reunion year is not only an opportunity to reconnect with old friends but also a chance to make a meaningful contribution to the institution that played a significant role in shaping your journey.
Be a part of the time-honored tradition of giving back through your reunion class gift. Regardless of the size of your contribution, every gift makes an impact on the university, its students, and the larger community.
