Redoing Reunion

Return to the scene of the fun. That’s the idea the National Alumni Association is sending out to alumni as they prepare for this year’s Reunion Weekend, which is set for Nov. 6-8. The Association has made some changes in the past year to make the event more fun and more interesting for those who return. 

The weekend was shortened to just three days and is now in the fall, at a time when students are on campus, in an effort to give alumni the chance to mingle with today’s students and get the feeling of being back at Xavier. Plus, more free time is in the offering to allow alumni to remember, recall and relive some of their glory days at Xavier. There will still be plenty of events to keep people entertained, though, including some that are unique to this year’s weekend.

  • Exclusive tour of the new Hoff Academic Quad: Attendees will be among the first to get a hardhat tour of the new Hoff Academic Quad and see how the Quad will transform the educational experience, providing students with an enriched learning environment unlike any other facility before.
  • 40 years of women at Xavier celebration: This year marks an important anniversary for our women students and alumnae. It’s the 40th anniversary of the first year when women were accepted as fulltime students at Xavier University. The Women of Excellence council plans to celebrate the anniversary with a special reception during Reunion Weekend.

This year’s Reunion Weekend is also more family friendly than ever. Students from the College of Social Sciences, Health, and Education are offering free babysitting for the weekend. Plus, additional fun activities are planned for the kids, including a Madcap puppet performance.
