The schedule has been set, invitations have been mailed, and RSVPs are now being accepted for Grand Reunion! We are proud to offer our Santa Clara alumni a weekend of events that will help you remember your time here on campus, reconnect with classmates and friends, and renew your relationship with the University. This is a celebration you won’t want to miss.
In an effort to not only convey how excited we are to welcome everyone back, but also to give you an inside look into what will be happening during the reunion weekend, this blog will feature a spotlight on a particular item on the schedule each week leading up to Grand Reunion, starting in September. So, please make sure to check back often and get the inside scoop on some of our most anticipated events.

During the month of February, the SCU Alumni Association unveiled a new and improved website designed to better connect all alumni with its events, programs, and services. A first glance reveals the use of beautiful images, conscientious messaging, and a clear layout that puts all of the information you need right at your fingertips. Take a closer look and you’ll see strategic connections not only with the Santa Clara Magazine (via the spotlight on the main page), but also with various schools, departments, and Centers of Distinction on campus (by clicking on any of the six tabs at the top of the page). We hope that you will utilize the Alumni website as your portal into the University and encourage you to visit often, as this dynamic new incarnation will always have something new to offer.
We also hope that will make your class website an online destination (if you haven’t already), as it is your one-stop-shop for information about your upcoming reunion. Take a moment to look through the list of “Lost Classmates” and let us know how we can get in touch with your classmates who have drifted away from us. View your class slide show, and if there isn’t one there yet, send in some photos so we can get one started. And if you are interested in serving on your reunion committee, it’s not too late! We can definitely use your helping hands when it comes to making this year’s Grand Reunion the best one yet; let us know via this interest form and we’ll take it from there.

Mark your calendars for one of Santa Clara’s biggest events: Grand Reunion Weekend! From October 11 – 14, we will welcome all alumni back to campus with 4 days of programming designed to show you the best of Santa Clara and reinforce your Bronco pride.
The full schedule of events will not be released until the spring, but the weekend includes everything from academic showcases featuring beloved SCU professors to receptions hosted by the various schools to a family friendly picnic on Saturday afternoon. There is even a 5k run! Watch the 2011 Grand Reunion slide show to get an idea of how fun last year’s festivities were.
The reunion classes of 1952, 1957, 1962, 1967, 1972, 1977, 1982, 1987, 1992, 1997, 2002, and 2007 can look forward to their class parties, which will give them the special opportunity to celebrate their milestones. And let us not forget about the members of the class of 2012 who, as the newest additions to the alumni family, will be able to celebrate their good fortune of joining the ranks of SCU’s capable and accomplished graduates.
Reunion committees are currently being formed; if you are interested in sharing your ideas and helping to get classmates to the reunion, fill out this interest form and we will get in touch with you. Also, a save the date magnet was mailed to the reunion classes in December; if you did not receive one, please update your contact information to avoid missing out on future reunion news.
We are excited for this year’s Grand Reunion and hope you are too! Make sure to come back and visit this blog periodically for updates on the weekend’s events.

In mid-December, we sent "save the date" magnets to all reunion-year alumni. Hopefully, your magnet is now proudly displayed on your refrigerator. If you didn't receive one, then we need your current address. You can update your contact information by e-mailing the Alumni Office at email@example.com, and we'll make sure that you receive a magnet and don't miss out on future reunion news.
