Reunion is all about reconnecting with your classmates. One great way to do that – and help bring your classmates together – is to volunteer as a Reunion Class Ambassador. This year the classes of 2015, 2010, 2005, 2000 and 1995 are celebrating reunions this year. If YOU graduated in one of them, and would like to reach out and help organize classmates to attend this year’s reunion, please volunteer as a Class Ambassador!

Please sign up to volunteer as a Class Ambassador. It’s fun - and it's never too early!  interested? Check our Volunteer hub for details.
