Class Reunion Schedule and Reunion FAQ

In 2015, we introduced some changes to our reunion programs. Based on your feedback, we moved to a reunion schedule that will group two or more adjacent class years together for their reunion dinner. Already common throughout higher education, these "cluster reunions" reflect the reality that your friends from Capital weren't just members of your class year. Now you can look forward to seeing even more familiar faces when you attend your reunion. (Have more questions? Take a look at the FAQ section below.)

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why did you stop doing reunions at Homecoming?
A: It's very common for schools to hold their reunions in the spring since it's the true anniversary of most graduations. (In fact, some schools even hold reunions as part of their commencement weekends!) At Capital, our class reunions were previously held during both Alumni Weekend and Homecoming. By consolidating all of our reunion programs into Alumni Weekend we're able to expand the scope of what we can do when hosting reunion dinners, providing an even better experience for attendees. Likewise, we can also now focus on providing activities at Homecoming that are inclusive of all the Cap Family, not just the reunion classes.

Q: Does the cluster reunion model mean I won't have a reunion every five years?
A: In many cases, reunion years will not fall in a regular five-year pattern. Due to the flexibility required to build a schedule that will create larger groups of adjacent classes, your reunion years will fall in a window of 4-6 years between reunions. We know that some reunion years are bigger than others, however, so classes will always celebrate their 10th, 25th and 50th reunions in the appropriate calendar years.

Q: If my reunion isn't every five years, how will I know when the next one is coming?
A:  We will always have the next three years of reunion clusters published here, and you are welcome to contact us to find out the groupings for later years. Additionally, you will receive plenty of notification by both mail and email about your upcoming reunion activities. (Is your contact information up to date? You can verify it here on capconnect.)
