While many of our university-led reunions occur during Homecoming Weekend each year, we know that some classes or affinity groups find time to get together throughout the year. Know that your Alumni Office stands ready to help support you in your efforts to plan reunion gatherings across the country... and, we'd love to promote it.
If you have a reunion that you would like listed or if you're interested in helping to plan a reunion, please contact Wendy Pondell at PondellWendyA@sau.edu or 563/333-6057.
