Alumni Reunion

Reunion @ Fall Fest 2019: October 11-12, 2019

Reunion and Fall Fest have been combined into a hallmark weekend for all alumni, as well as students, parents and family members!

This is the perfect opportunity to check out our changing campus, catch up with old friends and new, and see what current students are up to. With a variety of events to choose from—tours, lectures, parties, continuing education opportunities, and athletic games! There’s literally something for everyone.

General Information

Attire: Friday, since the events are after work, most people will be in business casual, and Sunday the dress will be similar. On Saturday the events range from an outdoor festival to our all-alumni reception. While our honorees and our 50th reunion class dress in dressy casual, all alumni should feel comfortable in comfortably casual.  If you plan on attending a tour, we urge you to wear comfortable shoes. The locker room at the ARC will be available if you'd like to make a clothing change before our evening events.

Special Assistance:  If you require special assistance during the day or evening, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 215-596-8856 a few days before the event so that we can help accommodate your needs. We will have golf carts available for alumni (upon request) who require assistance from one building to the next.

Weather:  Most events are inside, and all outdoor events do have rain location, we urge you to bring rain gear for the short walks between buildings.

Cancellations: Please let us know if you have an unavoidable change of plans as we must provide Catering with our guest count. We regret that we cannot refund your payment for any cancellations made during the week prior to reunion.  Please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 215-596-8856.

Parking:   Visitor parking is located in front of, or behind the Athletic/Recreation Center (#4 on map.) You can get to the lot by going south on 45th Street and following it around to either lot. Reunion registration will be held in the McNeil Science and Technology Center map.)
