Alumni participate in Collection

This year, Reunion Committees will help their class celebrate their milestone reunion through a yearlong virtual celebration. Each committee will plan up to four virtual events throughout the year and will send two formal messages to their class by email. These emails will be a chance to share virtual event opportunities and encourage classmates to support Swarthmore with a financial gift. View the complete list of Reunion Committee responsibilities
