Cluster Reunions

Famously loyal to the friends they made in college, Whitman College alumni have always attended their class reunions in impressive numbers, and they have left Walla Walla with memories and friendships strengthened. But when the Alumni Association Board asked, "What would make Whitman reunions even better?" The answer came back loud and clear: "We have good friends in classes before and behind us. Is there any way we can reunite with them?" That's the rationale behind Whitman's new "cluster reunion concept."

In some anniversary years-tenth, twenty-fifth, fortieth and fiftieth-each class will still have its own reunion.

In other years-fifth, fifteenth, twentieth, thirtieth, thirty-fifth and forty-fifth-each class will come together with two other consecutive classes to enjoy a larger cluster reunion. To make this possible, some classes will be having these particular reunions a year off schedule. And, in order to give every class the widest possible contact with other classes, the schedule staggers cluster reunions. That is, in some cluster reunions a class will join with the class immediately before and the class immediately behind. In other years, a class will join with the two years before or the two years after.

If this sounds a little complicated, well, yes, it is, a little. But the Alumni Office has made it easy to keep track of your own class's reunion schedule. Simply enter your class year into the filter field below to see the schedule for your class year.
