More Than 1,400 Stags Returned to Campus for Reunion 2017
On June 9 to 11, nearly 1,450 alumni and their guests came home to Fairfield to celebrate Reunion Weekend 2017. This year’s Reunion alumni — those in classes ending in a 2 or a 7 — were treated to a weekend full of reminiscing and reconnecting with friends and classmates. The festivities began with Friday night class receptions at venues around town, and the excitement continued on Saturday with the annual Fun Run, a walking tour of campus, the Taste of Fairfield and Stags BeerFest, and Mass in the Egan Chapel. Capping off the night was dinner under the big top on Bellarmine Lawn, where alumni danced the night away.
Also celebrating on campus that weekend were the University’s Golden Stags, alumni who graduated more than 50 years ago. These seasoned alumni took part in many of the Reunion activities during the day and then had their own special dinner at the Dolan School of Business on Saturday evening.
It was a wonderful weekend from start to finish and a joy to have so many Stags back on campus. All alumni in classes ending in a 3 or 8, mark your calendars for Reunion 2018 scheduled for June 8 to 10, 2018!
