Tips for Planning Your Class Reunion

With class reunion season coming up sooner than you think, it’s a good idea to start buckling down and preparing for your event, if you intend to hold one this summer.

Here are just a few tips to help you through the process of planning a class reunion!


  • Set a date and location: Choose a date and location that works for the majority of alumni. Consider the time of year, accessibility, and cost when making your decisions.

  • Reach out to alumni: Start by reaching out to classmates through social media, email, or old-fashioned snail mail. Encourage them to spread the word to other alumni.
  • Plan activities: Plan a mix of activities that will appeal to different age groups and interests. Consider activities like a tour of the old school, a picnic, or a dance.
  • Keep it affordable: Make sure that the reunion is affordable for everyone. Offer different payment options and consider holding a fundraiser to offset costs.
  • Capture memories: Make sure to capture memories from the reunion. Hire a photographer or assign someone to take photos and videos. Encourage alumni to bring old photos to share.
