Alumni Reunion registration packets were recently sent via campus mail to all faculty and staff. Unfortunately, some packets received the wrong RSVP card–the correct card has “Faculty & Staff Reservation Card” on the cover (the incorrect card reads only “Reservation Card” on the cover). If your packet didn’t contain the correct card, please e-mail email@example.com and we’ll drop a new one in the mail. See you at Reunion 2013, June 27-30!
Faculty and staff members are encouraged to join the hundreds of alumni who return to campus to participate in the annual Alumni Reunion.

Reunion is the largest alumni event of the year, annually drawing over a thousand alumni, faculty, staff, and friends to campus for a weekend of reconnection and reminiscing. This year, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the School of Education, as well as the milestone classes of 1963 and 1988. With more than 40 events spread over four days, there are a wide range of activities for everyone. The School of Education 50th Anniversary Gala dinner kicks off the weekend’s festivities on Thursday night, followed by Friday’s National Alumni Board Golf Tournament, a bus tour along the Hood River Fruit Loop, the Purple Flamingo Happy Hour reception, and the Late Night Talent Pub. Saturday features the Old Stomping Grounds 5K run, the 50 Year Club Mass and Lunch, a Men’s Basketball Alumni game, Saturday Academy classes for school-age kids, a bike tour of North Portland, a story session with Brian Doyle, receptions for the classes observing quinquennial anniversaries, and the signature event of the weekend, the Fiesta Forever Dinner and Dance. The weekend concludes on Sunday with the All-Alumni Mass and Brunch. For more information contact the alumni office at 7328 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
