Register Now for Reunion 2010
There's still time to register for Reunion 2010. Reminisce, reunite and
relive the best times of your life at Reunion Weekend, set for June 10
to 13 on campus.
"Our last two reunions have broken all attendance records, and we are expecting a similarly robust crowd at this year's gathering," said Betsy Oberst, executive director of Oswego Alumni Association. "Many events sell out, so alumni hoping to attend next weekend will want to make reservations now."
Check out the schedule of activities and see who's registered for Reunion.
Themed events will focus on memories. The "Down by the Boardwalk" picnic on Saturday afternoon will feature cotton candy, popcorn and snow cones. Saturday evening's "Memories on the Lake" dinner will feature favorite foods on a expansive buffet in Oswego's new Campus Center and nostalgic amusements including a photo booth.
Reunion 2010 is a great opportunity to catch up and network with classmates. Though all class years are invited, special events are planned for the milestone classes of 1940, '45, 50, '55, 60, '65, '70, '74, '75, '76,'85, '94, '95, '96 and 2000. Groups having mini-reunions include: Alpha Delta Eta (85th Anniversary), Alpha Sigma Chi, Arethusa, Blackfriars, Beta Tau Epsilon, Delta Chi Omega/TKE, Delta Kappa Kappa, Men's Football, Mu Beta Psi, Omega Delta Phi, Omicron Xi, Oneida Hall, Phi Lambda Phi, Pi Delta Chi, Psi Phi Gamma, Scales Hall, Sigma Gamma, Sigma Tau Chi and Theta Chi Rho.
Reunion classes have been generous this year, with the classes of 1955 and 1960 leading the race for the Participation Cup with 38 percent of each class participating. "All gifts made by June 10 count toward the Participation Cup," said Jamie Stack Leszczynski '04, associate director of annual giving. Members of the 50th, 40th, 35th, 25th and 10th anniversary classes can check their classes' progress online, and anyone can still make a gift now.
