Fellow 2007 Ole Grads,
It seems like just yesterday we were riding stolen caf trays down Old Main Hill, checking our PO boxes for Friday Flowers, or standing in line for late night finals breakfast. Believe it or not, that was 10 years ago! We hope we will see you June 2- 4, 2017, for our 10-year reunion. This will be your chance to return to the Hill and celebrate the things that connected us and honor what each of us has experienced and accomplished since that sunny graduation day 10 years ago.
Now, the College invites us to return to the Hill, to celebrate, reminisce, and even—can you believe it?—drink on campus! We’ll get to come back to the Hill, stay in the dorms, and enjoy all the activities planned by a reunion committee of your classmates. Some of the events that will take place include:
- Friday Night Happy Hour with hors d’oeuvres
- Featured stories from classmates highlighting the highs and lows since graduation
- A Concert by the Johnny Holm Band
- Lectures by your favorite professors
- 5K Walk/Run
- Bonfires and drinks
As you prepare to return to campus, please take a few minutes to think back to 2003-2007. What are your fondest memories? Maybe it was jamming to the new Justin Timberlake album in your dorm, or when you got your first Facebook account in 2004 and gave up stalkernet forever, or just spending time with friends. We would love to see your pictures…from when you were a student and since you’ve graduated! Please send any photos you’d like to share at reunion weekend to Katie Henly (firstname.lastname@example.org). Also, watch your email in the coming months for more information on how you can participate at our reunion weekend.
Enclosed you’ll find an overview of weekend events, including our Friday night class dinner, the All-Class Parade on Saturday morning, our Saturday class dinner, and entertainment. Of course, we know the real magic happens in those moments when you reconnect with the people who made your St. Olaf experience meaningful and the places that are still so memorable. Whether you’ve visited campus for Homecoming or Christmas Fest, or haven’t set foot on the Hill since graduation, Reunion Weekend promises to be filled with celebration and good conversations. So, what have you been up to? We’re excited to see you on the Hill in June to hear all about it!
Between now and Reunion Weekend, please make sure to do the following:
- Join the St. Olaf Class of 2007 Facebook page to stay up to date on events, happenings, and class news
