At Simmons University, Reunion is an annual event that celebrates classes on a 5-year cycle. The main goal of Reunion is to bring alumnae/i together to celebrate Simmons and one another, reminisce and reflect on your Simmons experience, create meaningful connections and encourage lifelong learning. It's an opportunity to rejoin the student experience!
Thank you to everyone who attended and helped plan our first ever Virtual Reunion Weekend held in June 2021 and in celebration of Simmons classes ending in 0, 1, 5, and 6! (Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we combined with the previous year's reunion cycle and could only host virtual activities.)
Visit the Resources folder of Simmons Network for recordings and programming on demand from this milestone occasion! Annual awards and photos capturing the virtual event are also found on Simmons Network, which is a great place to stay connected to your fellow reunioners.
The Reunion post-event survey is now closed, but if you have additional thoughts on this annual event or are interested in joining the planning team in the future, please contact [email protected] or call us at 1-800-960-4558.
Next year's Reunion will occur in late May/early June of 2022 in celebration of classes ending in 2 and 7. This chance for reminiscing and celebrating Simmons' past, present and future, will include both in-person and virtual activities. Browse our Reunion 2021 schedule of events for examples of the types of programming we strive to offer.
We appreciate all forms of support that Simmons Sharks, from all corners of our community, provide in the planning, executing, and participation of Reunion Weekend. Thank you for continuing to share your time, talent, treasure, testimony, and ties with the University.
