Reunion Weekend 2020
October 23-24, 2020
As we navigate the impacts of the pandemic for campus events in the fall we are waiting for key decisions to help guide how we celebrate Homecoming 2020 tentatively scheduled for October 23rd & 24th.
Currently Ross Reunion falls during University of Michigan Homecoming Weekend. For the next year this will be October 23rd and 24th, 2020.
Ross recognizes all degree holding students who are celebrating their 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40, and 50 year Reunions as our Milestone Reunion Years.
Milestone Reunion Years are invited to attend a special event celebrating all Milestone Classes the Friday evening of Homecoming Weekend hosted by Ross. Full-time MBA and BBA Milestone Years are also able to receive support from a staff member to help their class with planning off-site reunion events.
Off-site reunion events are opportunities for class years to reconnect with each other. Milestone Class events are planned and run by alumni volunteers, which includes planning, managing payment (if applicable), managing RSVPs, and executing the off-site celebrations.
We provide a staff contact to serve as an on-site expert in Ann Arbor venues, hotels, and to provide insight into what has been successful and what has been difficult for prior Milestone Class Events. We will help to secure Milestone Reunion Class Leadership and assist the Class Leaders to form a larger committee if needed. We will also provide and support a class communication schedule to ensure that classmates are kept up to date on Reunion events.
Ross hosts the Ross Homecoming Tailgate the Saturday of Homecoming Weekend, and all alumni are welcome to attend that event regardless of graduation year. The Tailgate is hosted at Ross starting two and a half hours before kickoff of the Homecoming Football game. Admission includes drinks, a full buffet spread, a kids zone with activities, class photos, a DJ, and more! More information on timing and registration instructions will be shared with all alumni as we get closer to the event.
If you would like to be involved in planning your Milestone Year Reunion please reach out to RossReunionTeam@umich.edu to learn more. Class events are entirely volunteer driven, and we would love to have your help in shaping what your Reunion Weekend looks like!
