Class Reunions

If you were part of a Houghton class ending in ‘0’ or ‘5’, then 2020 is your reunion year!

We want to help you reconnect with classmates and with your alma mater throughout this year.  Due to COVID-19, we have moved homecoming and reunion celebrations to a virtual format and we hope that many of you will join us for some or all of the great programming that is planned.  You will see below some things you can do in your reunion year to connect with your classmates and your alma mater, even if you can’t make the trip back to campus.

We know that some of you will not be able to make it back to campus for these gatherings, but there are still things you can do to celebrate this milestone year with your classmates.

The Class of 1970 (50th reunion) held a virtual reunion in May and will return to campus for an in-person reunion in May of 2021 during Commencement Weekend. (https://www.houghton.edu/alumni/class-reunions/50-year-reunion/)

The Classes of 1955, 1960, 1965, 1975, and 1980 will meet during the 2021 Summer Alumni Weekend.

Virtual reunions will be held for the Classes of 2015, 2010, 2005, 2000, 1995, 1990, and 1985 on October 3, during the 2020 Homecoming Weekend with a follow-up in-person celebration in 2021.
