  • Reunion 2013 "super fun times!"

    June 17, 2013

    Reunion 2013 1Whether catching up with pals at Friday night class events, dancing with globes under the Pearsons tent (those dancers will remain nameless...), experiencing the great honor of being 'hooded' at the Golden Hoods Ceremony, parading in the misty rain, swapping stories at C-Haus, eating birthday cake ice cream from Dairyhaus, celebrating with fellow alumni as they receive their DSC award, laughing and cheering with President Bierman at the all-class celebration, enjoying classes with the faculty, hearing about the desegregation of the Greek system with Eric Hetland'12, catching a ride to your dorm on the golf cart, or just plain laying in the grass in Chapin Quad, reunion 2013 was, as one '98 alum put it, "super fun times." Photos are available now on our Beloit College Alumni Affairs Facebook page and here. Thank you for joining us!

    If you missed it, come on back for Homecoming 2013 September 20-22 and mark your calendar for Reunion 2014--June 13-16.

    Reunion 2013 is June 14-16.

    All alumni are welcome to come home to Beloit to "own the school for a couple days and reminisce"..."Overall a great experience!"--'97 alum after reunion 2012.

  • Great to see you at Reunion 2012

    March 21, 2011

    Big hugs, smiles, reminiscing, ice cream, water guns, celebrating, reconnecting, waking up in the dorms, parades, picnics, classmates, and so much more - alumni took back the campus June 8-10 for reunion 2012. The weekend was full of events planned by you, the alumni, such as a beer and cheese tasting, social work mixer, ultimate frisbee and soccer games, a civil rights panel, the alumni assembly, an all-class celebration, birdwatching, and special class events. Everywhere you turned, alumni were reliving their Beloit days, reviving memories, and making new ones. Faculty offered classes, an ice cream truck shared treats, and the C-Haus and residence halls were full.

     Check out photos from the weekend here! Even more photos are available on our Facebook page.

    Thank you for making Beloit your home for the weekend - we look forward to seeing you again for Homecoming September 28-30 and Reunion 2013, June 14-16.
