A Letter from the Director of Alumnae/i and Volunteer Engagement for the Office of Advancement
Dear Simmons Reunion Alumnae/i,
Reunion is a time to celebrate your Simmons pride and friendships, reminisce and reflect on your experience, and reconnect with the University and with one another. While our ability to host any on-campus gatherings remains impacted by forces beyond our control, the pandemic has given us the opportunity to become more innovative and personalized with our programming.
We can offer you a variety of celebrations that will bring the Simmons family together in a safe, virtual space. This programming will be formally unveiled in the coming months, including an online speaker series, digital family-friendly activities, traditions reinvented and continuous e-learning sessions. It will be a combination of live and asynchronous (pre-recorded) activities. We’re also partnering with class officers to schedule individual virtual class events. A survey was sent to reunion classes with the virtual format announcement.
Connect with other alumnae/i in your reunion cycle and the one before yours, and stay informed through the Simmons Network. As a reunion year alum, you should already have access to the Reunion 2021 group and can locate it on the left-hand sidebar of the Network, under the Groups tab. In addition to keeping you informed about virtual reunion offerings, this group is an outlet to share personal updates with your class, favorite photos and memories, and showcase your Simmons pride. The Network is also a great resource for mentoring opportunities, joining affinity groups, and engaging with faculty, staff and students.
Thank you for your patience and flexibility throughout these unprecedented times. We will continue to share exciting updates as they become available.
Wishing you happiness and good health,
Kristina (Krissy) Raposa
