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 1984 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 1984 Party

Join fellow 40th Reunion celebrants on Danforth Campus for a nostalgic evening in the Women’s Building Formal Lounge. Opened in 1928, the Women’s Building was the result of a grassroots effort by female students to erect a meeting place for WashU sororities. The Women’s Building quickly became a favorite student hangout and the source of many memories for WashU alumni over the last century. Classmates will enjoy reminiscing over cocktails, dinner, music, and dancing. Reconnect with friends and make new memories in this iconic WashU spot at the Class of 1984 Party.

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.
