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 1994 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 1994 Party

Join the Class of 1994 in the beautiful Holmes Lounge on the Danforth Campus. Originally the university’s library in the 1900s, the historic main entrance overlooks Brookings Quadrangle, where university-wide events such as commencement and WILD were once held. Share memories of your days at WashU with your classmates while enjoying dinner, drinks, music, and great conversation in this iconic campus location.

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.
