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!
Reunion 2023 will be celebrated at two different times this year.
The first celebration will be for the Class of 1973 (50th Reunion)…
- Coffee and conversation with President Lynn Perry Wooten
- Boxed lunch and museum tour
- Informal Friday night gathering
- Saturday morning reflection: Where we were and where we are
- A memorable class dinner and more!

Registration for the Class of 1973 50th Reunion Weekend in-person offerings is now closed. Walk-in registration will be available throughout the weekend, but tickets to certain events (such as the art museum tour) will be limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Walk-ins may pay by credit card or check only; cash will not be accepted. Dorm stay will also not be available for walk-ins.
Complimentary parking in Simmons Parking Garages is included with ticket purchase (whether registered for walk-in). Pull a parking ticket upon entry to the gate, and a complimentary ticket will be given at check-in for you to use upon exiting. Complimentary tickets also apply to those staying overnight in Smith Hall. Please note: Red Sox games are home over reunion weekend, and game attendees often park in Simmons Garage, so plan accordingly.
