Volunteers Will Make Sesquicentennial Reunion
SUNY Oswego’s 150th birthday is coming in 2011, but there
won’t be a party without volunteers.
Sesquicentennial Reunion Celebration is slated for June 10 to 12, but the
Oswego Alumni Association needs the help of class planning volunteers now to
make it a memorable celebration.
Support by organizers for the biggest annual SUNY Oswego alumni event is a crucial part of keeping our campus community vibrant and our
graduates engaged, said Betsy Oberst, associate vice president for alumni
relations and stewardship.
More than 1,200 alumni, family and friends attended more
than 63 events during Reunion 2010.
“We expect even greater interest and participation
in this year’s extra-special reunion,” Oberst said. “It only comes along once
every 150 years!”
Reunion Class Volunteers help plan activities for the weekend, including
special events for their graduation year or group. With the help of volunteers
networking with their classmates and friends, the attendee list and
anticipation for the Sesquicentennial Reunion Celebration will grow.
