Reunion

Reunion 2017 (June 2-4)

Return to campus!

Reconnect with friends, reacquaint yourself with campus and make some new memories.  Make plans to come back to campus and reminisce with your classmates, visit your favorite places in Worcester and see what is new on campus.  Take the opportunity to reflect on all you have accomplished since you joined the Assumption alumni family.  We look forward to seeing you!

Join your friends and fellow alumni from the class years ending in 2 or 7 on June 2-4 for a terrific weekend of fun.  Throughout the weekend you will have opportunities to enjoy a variety of activities or just relax and unwind.  Best of all, you will have a chance to renew acquaintances and make new friendships with other alumni. Please reach out to classmates and plan to meet at Reunion.

CLASS GIFT: When a class celebrates a reunion, classmates are encouraged to participate in the Reunion Class Gift (a gift to the Annual Fund or another College priority). Reunion classes strive for 40-50% class participation - some come in even higher! Current donors are encouraged to consider increasing their annual gift. Alumni who are not annual donors are asked to participate with a gift of any size to increase the participation level. The goal is to present the College with a Reunion Class Gift that reflects the enthusiasm of the class and their affection for Assumption College.

There can be tax advantages to making donations of appreciated securities, and corporate matching gifts count toward your class gift. This can be an easy way to double, or even triple, the impact of your gift.

Every gift - no matter what size - counts toward class participation!
