Registration Open for the Sesquicentennial Reunion Celebration
This summer's Reunion Weekend June 10 to 12 is a party 150 years in the making.
The Oswego Alumni Association expects more than 1,500 graduates of SUNY Oswego to return to campus for the Sesquicentennial Reunion Celebration. A special Friday night rock concert and Saturday morning 5K run are among the new additions to this year's festivities.
Alumni can enjoy early-bird savings on popular events like the "Come as You Were" barbecue at Fallbrook, "Picnic on the Lake" behind Johnson Hall and Saturday dinner at the Campus Center through May 20. Dozens of events are planned.
Every graduate of Oswego is invited to observe the college's noteworthy milestone at June's Reunion. There will also be special events planned for milestone anniversary reunion classes, including 1936, 1941, 1946, 1951, 1956, 1961, 1966, 1971, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1986, 2001, 2005, 2006 and 2007.
In addition, Alpha Delta Eta, Alpha Epsilon Phi (25th anniversary), Alpha Sigma Chi, Arethusa, Beta Tau Epsilon, Delta Chi Omega/TKE, Delta Kappa Kappa (85th anniversary), Men's Wrestling, Omega Delta Phi, Phi Lambda Phi, Phi Sigma Phi, Pi Delta Chi, Psi Phi Gamma, Riggs Hall, Sigma Gamma, Sigma Tau Chi, the Sodus Migrant Project and Theta Chi Rho have special events planned.
Even those who can't make it to Oswego's big birthday bash can partake in 150th festivities by taking a picture with college Founder Edward Austin Sheldon himself.
Alumni and friends are invited to download Flat Founder and snap a candid photo to share with Oswego enthusiasts the world over. One lucky photographer will receive a $150 gift certificate to the College Store via a random drawing later this year.
Meanwhile, all milestone Reunion classes are competing for the Reunion Giving Participation Cup. The class that gets the most members to participate in special fundraising efforts for a collective gift to the college will win.
