Update your Information
To assure you receive all our reunion communications this year, PLEASE MAKE SURE your contact information is correct. You can update your information on-line. Thank you!
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.
Remember, 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 towards class participation! Make your Reunion gift on-line.
Reunioners will be housed in the Living/Learning Center. LLC is an air-conditioned suite-style, private-bath accommodation. Class of 2008 will be housed in West Hall.
- Send names of requested roommates with paid reservation – all requests must match.
- If no request is received, a roommate will be assigned.
- Housing will be assigned on a first paid - first served basis.
- We supply: Sheets, pillowcases, towels, blankets, and an opportunity for you to reconnect with old friends and network with new friends! (Class of 2008 to provide their own bedding and towels.)
What to Bring:
- A bathing suit for a dip in the Plourde Recreation Center swimming pool and your enthusiasm!
- Your digital cameras! E-mail us your photos after the event so we can post on your reunion website.
