Reunion is a very special time. It is about reconnecting with classmates and friends, revisiting familiar spots on campus, and learning about Williston Northampton today. Whether it's been five years or 50 since you were last on campus, we hope you will join us for Reunion 2015. Even if your class is not scheduled for a Reunion this year, you are welcome to join us. If you graduated early, late, or simply feel close to a class beside your own, you are welcome to come and adopt a Reunion class for the weekend. We are grateful for your ideas for events, seminars, and entertainment. Contact Jeff Pilgrim '81, director of alumni relations, at (413) 529-3301 | Please check this site throughout the year for updated information on the schedule of events, how to register, lists of who is planning to attend, and special class activities.
