After much discussion and reflection with your reunion planning committee, we have made the difficult decision to postpone your 50 year Gonzaga Reunion, previously scheduled for June 19 – 21, 2020. The revised plan moving forward will be to host a 50 year Reunion for the Class of 1970 next year, potentially in collaboration with the Class of 1971 Reunion. We will share specific dates when they are confirmed.


 

Memory book submission deadline has been extended to May 1, 2020.

 

Save the Date for Reunion this Fall:

We will welcome all classes back to campus, with special celebrations for the Classes of 1980, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010, and 2015. For questions please contact Crissy Byers byersc@gonzaga.edu.
