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 1989 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 1989 Party
Join the class of 1989 at the beautiful Kemper Art Museum designed by Fumihiko Maki, a Pritzker Prize-winning architect and former Washington University faculty member. The museum features more than 18,000 square feet of exhibition space containing galleries for rotating special exhibitions as well as selections from the permanent collection. Kemper sits on the edge of Tisch Park near iconic Brookings. Enjoy the beautiful space while enjoying gourmet food, an open bar, music, and great conversation sharing memories of your time at WashU.
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.
