The Alumni Association is excited to virtually celebrate undergraduate classes ending in -0, -1, -5 and -6 with a schedule of special events and opportunities to reconnect with classmates. Join us online as we celebrate our alumni community in a brand new way from June 9-12!
Schedule highlights will include updates from University leadership and beloved faculty members, virtual tours of new and upcoming spaces on Grounds, and, of course, plenty of opportunities to reconnect with friends and classmates you haven’t seen in years.
Register below for this free celebration! The first 3,000 Reunion-year alumni registrants will also receive a special Hoo-Rah-Ray Box, created just for Reunions Remixed, full of things that will cheer your heart and help you celebrate what it means to be a Wahoo.
Stay tuned for the full list of events in May, when you’ll receive an email prompting you to select your Reunions Remixed schedule.
Frequently Asked Questions
How did the Alumni Association come to the decision to cancel the in-person celebration for Reunions 2021?
Safeguarding everyone’s health in our alumni, University, and greater Charlottesville communities and doing our part to slow the spread of COVID-19 is our highest priority. Following CDC guidance and University restrictions on in-person gatherings, we consulted with our alumni-led Board of Managers and University leadership and came to the difficult decision to forgo an in-person Reunions celebration this year.
For further information on University restrictions for in-person events, please visit the University’s Return to Grounds website.
Will you reschedule in-person Reunions for these classes later this year?
We will not be rescheduling in-person Reunions for undergraduate classes ending in -0, -1, -5, -6. While we share in your disappointment that we will not be celebrating together in person, we have based this decision on the unique circumstances of hosting an event of this scale in the current environment. We’re excited by the opportunity to reach more alumni than ever before through our virtual programming, and we hope you are too! In addition, we hope you and your friends will join us at other Alumni Association and University programs on the Grounds once it is safe to gather in large groups again.
Final Exercises are happening in person. Why isn’t Reunions?
In March, the governor of Virginia released guidance for how colleges, universities and K-12 schools could safely hold in-person graduation and commencement events. This guidance only applies to graduation events. For more information on current COVID-19 event restrictions, visit the Virginia Department of Health website.
What can I expect from a virtual reunion celebration?
Schedule highlights will include updates from University leadership and beloved faculty members, virtual tours of new and upcoming spaces on Grounds, and, of course, plenty of opportunities to reconnect with friends and classmates you haven’t seen in years. The Alumni Association has been working with members of your class Reunion Committee to ensure the programming will be of interest.
When will my next in-person reunion be held?
For graduating classes that end in -0 or -5, your next reunion will be in 2025. For graduation classes that end in -1 or -6, your next reunion will be in 2026. The exact dates will be determined a year in advance of the celebration so you will have ample time to plan to attend. However, we hope to see you in Charlottesville long before then – whether it be for a football game, to move a student into dorms, or just for a trip down memory lane.
