Preliminary Schedule

Weekend Plans.  Our plans are far from finalized, but we recognize that you'll want to understand what we expect to take place when as you make your Reunions plans. (That said, we hope you'll attend the entire Thursday-Sunday weekend!) We'll update this page (and let you know via email) as the schedule firms up.


Preliminary. Despite whatever specificity you might see below, everything is, in theory and maybe practice, subject to change!


Our schedule: (Keeping in mind that there are dozens of other events open to all Reunions attendees--Alumni-Faculty Forums, theatrical/improv/singing group shows, "Friends of..." receptions, and more, and that there are special activities for our Class of 1980 Affinity Groups. For the Affinity Group schedule of activities, click here.)
