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 2004 Party!

Registration is now open. Be sure to register by March 1 to receive your early bear discount.

Class of 2004 Party

Join the Class of 2004 at the Boo Cat Club, a cultural venue with a modern sensibility and historic charm, located in the Delmar area. Throughout the evening you’ll be able to share memories of your days spent at WashU with your classmates while enjoying dinner, drinks, music, and great conversation.

Friday Night Class After-Party

The Class of 2004 reunion committee invites 20th reunion celebrants to join classmates following Friday night’s Welcome Back Party at Brennan’s in Central West End. Join for a night cap, to reconnect with friends, great conversation, or simply to extend the fun. Classmates will gather for an informal meet-up immediately following the Welcome Back Party. No need to register. Just attend. Cash bar.

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.
