Each year the Office of Alumni Relations hosts Reunion Weekend on the Mary Washington campus. Over 800 alumni and guests are expected to come back to campus and participate in dozens of intellectual, cultural, and social activities. While alumni from all classes are welcome at Reunion Weekend, classes ending in fours and nines from 1949 to 2009 are invited back to campus this year to celebrate their milestone reunions. This very special Reunion Weekend will be held May 30 – June 2, 2019.

We would like to extend the invitation for the entire campus community to participate in the various events throughout the weekend in order to connect with former students. The Reunion Weekend schedule is listed online at http://alumni.umw.edu/reunionweekend. Online pre-registration is closed, but you may register in person on campus! Walk-Up Registration will be located in the lobby of the University Center and will be open from 8am-5pm on Friday and again from 7:30am-3pm on Saturday.

Alumni Come Home to UMW for Reunion Weekend

Faculty and staff will come together with more than 700 UMW alumni and their guests at the Fredericksburg campus this Friday through Sunday for Reunion Weekend. The weekend offers alumni the chance to learn from current faculty members through Alumni College sessions in history, economics, psychology, biology, historic preservation, political science, physics and art.

Alumni from 1947 to 2002 will meet on Friday night for gatherings by class year and on Saturday night, alumni from across the university’s history will join for an All-Class Party at the Jepson Alumni Executive Center.

Reunion Weekend also will feature open houses of new university facilities, walking tours of campus, and special events like yoga at Ball Circle and a Virginia wine tasting. Dozens of faculty and staff volunteers will be on-hand to welcome alumni back to campus and assist with the weekend’s events.

A full schedule is available at http://www.umw.edu/reunionweekend/. For more information, contact Mark Thaden at (540) 654-1011.

Volunteer for Reunion Weekend, June 1-3

Are you interested in volunteering for Reunion Weekend?  We are expecting over 700 alumni and guests to visit UMW the Friday, June 1 through Sunday, June 3, and we need your help to make everything run smoothly.  If you have not done so already, please check out the Reunion Weekend website at www.umw.edu/reunionweekend to see the schedule  and recent announcements.

In order for Reunion Weekend to be a success, we need dozens of volunteers to assist with a variety of tasks.  There are over 150 different shifts available throughout the weekend, and duties range from riding the trolley to Carl’s to taking tickets at the picnic.  This year we’re using VolunteerSpot, an online coordination tool, to help us organize the volunteer registration process.    Please click the link below to view the various volunteer opportunities and to sign up.  Once you enter your email address, select the day you are interested in volunteering and a menu of volunteer opportunities will be available.  Choose whichever ones best fit your time schedule and talents.

You are welcome to sign up for as much or as little as your schedule will allow.  Each volunteer will receive a free Reunion Weekend t-shirt.  Volunteer shirts will be in red so alumni and guests know who is working the event.   Mark Thaden, director of Alumni Relations, will send a follow up note the week before Reunion Weekend confirming your time and duties as well as any other specific information you may need for your shift.  Please feel free to forward this to any alumni, friends, or colleagues who may be interested in volunteering.
