Many alumni participated in a survey this past winter about preferences for SJU class reunions. We had an enthusiastic response, with more than 3,800 alumni (about 30 percent) responding.
The survey results revealed that Saint John's alumni overwhelmingly support the idea of a joint reunion. A survey by Saint Ben's had the same outcome.
As a result of the survey and consultations with the boards of directors of the SJU Alumni and CSB Alumnae Associations, SJU class reunions will be celebrated in the summer, concurrently with CSB, starting in 2015.
Summer class reunions will open up a wide range of new programming possibilities. There will be opportunities to socialize and reconnect with both SJU and CSB classmates. On-campus housing will be available. And it will be easier to involve faculty and staff in reunion activities.
Homecoming will remain a signature event at Saint John's. As always, all alumni and their families will be invited back in the fall to celebrate Homecoming.
We look forward to welcoming you back to campus for your next class reunion-and for Homecoming this fall!
