Hugs, laughter, shared memories, and maybe a few gray hairs... No matter the season, it feels great to reconnect with friends old and new. Now's the time to start connecting with your friends and planning your trip to Beloit. The residence halls will be available again this year for your staying pleasure, and a full schedule (and we mean full!) of events is already in the works.
Now, who better to plan your class' reunion events than you? Committee members have a great time planning events, reconnecting with friends, and reminiscing. We are looking for volunteers for the reunion committees--tell us you are interested here.
More information to come later, but for now, mark your calendars for Reunion 14--June 13-16, 2014.
