Grand Reunion Weekend Is Here!
Friday, Oct. 12, 2012
Grand Reunion Weekend is here! The weather outside may be somber, but the sun is starting to peek out from behind the clouds, brightly colored flags are waving all over, vibrant banners are out warmly welcoming everyone who enters the campus, and Donohoe Alumni house is buzzing with excited conversation. Practically overnight, impressively large tents have sprouted here and there, waiting expectantly to be filled with the presence, laughter, and shared memories of the reunion classes who will be celebrating in them tomorrow night. Students rubbing the last bit of sleep from their eyes pass by the structures, wondering just how many people are expected to be on campus this weekend; with over 3500 alumni and guests anticipated, this is going to be some party!
As you begin to make their way to campus, we would like to take this opportunity to share some last minute reminders and details: To start off your weekend on the right foot, please make Donohoe Alumni House ( which is across from Kenna and kitty-corner to Benson) your first stop to check-in and receive your name tag; do your classmates a favor and help prevent awkward fumbling as they try to place your face with your (forgotten) name. If you have only recently made the decision to join us on campus but haven't yet registered, we will be happy to sign you up on site inside Donohoe.
Next, we appreciate you taking the time to come back and celebrate your alma mater, but we recognize that life goes on and you may need to remain connected to the world beyond this beautiful campus. Therefore, we are pleased to offer all Grand Reunion attendees a complimentary Wifi connection via the Wireless Network SCUGrandReunion. No password is needed, which makes it easier for you to log on and take care of business.
Also, for those of you staying at the DoubleTree and Fairmont hotels, we hope you will take advantage of the available shuttles. Scheduled to run every 30 minutes, they are a convenient and worry-free way to get to the action here on campus.
Lastly, for those of you on Twitter, we encourage you to share your thoughts, memories, and experiences on campus this weekend. Tweet us at @scualumni and don't forget to use the hashtag #GrandReunion. We look forward to reading your tweets!
Thanks in advance for what is going to be an awesome weekend; we can't wait to see you!
