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!

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

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.

Friday Night Class After-Party

The Class of 1989 reunion committee invites 35th reunion celebrants to join classmates following Friday night’s Welcome Back Party at Krueger’s Bar. 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.
