Let us know if you are planning to attend​ today. The more alumni we have attend, the more fun Reunion will be! We look forward to seeing you in May!

Reconnect with friends and classmates
When asked, "What made you most excited about Reunion at Commencement 2018?" a Class of 1968 alum answered "It was an outstanding event in every respect. My image of Washington University was enhanced and I reconnected with classmates I knew, and met many I didn't."
Once-in-a-lifetime events
The 50th Reunion is centered on two pinnacle events - the Medallion Ceremony and Commencement March.
Hear what past attendees have to say about these special events.

Medallion Ceremony
The Class of 1970 will don cap and gown for this momentous ceremony. Proceed as a class into Graham Chapel, participate in a beautiful ceremony, and receive a keepsake 50th Reunion Medallion. Family members and guests are welcome to join in this special not-to-be missed event for the 50th Reunion.

Commencement March
Experience Commencement once again, but this time you will lead the procession into the Quadrangle and sit on stage! Commencement is an important and moving event in the lives of students, faculty, parents, and alumni. Many past 50th Reunion attendees look back on this event as one of their favorite experiences during Reunion. Family members and guests are welcome to attend and will have special seating during the ceremony.

A special time on campus
Commencement weekend is an extraordinary time on campus. Students and their families celebrate graduation from Washington U. and it is wonderful to be able to experience this occasion again 50 years later. Though the campus has grown and changed, this is still your Washington University.
