Class of 2014: Celebrate Your 5th Reunion, June 7–9, 2019!

Five years have flown by. You have friends you haven’t seen since graduation in 2014. Perhaps you wonder what’s changed at Middlebury and what’s the same. Well, get ready to reconnect, catch up, and share memories! Make plans now to come back for Middlebury Reunion Weekend 2019, June 7–9.

More than 2,000 people came back last year, including 320 from the 5th reunion class—45 percent of the Class of 2013. We hope the Class of 2014 will have an even better turnout. You’ll hang out with your friends, reconnect with people you’ve lost touch with, and find friends in people you only knew by sight. And you’ll enjoy Vermont at the (second) most beautiful time of year.

 A look back at Reunion 2018

Get Involved

The College organizes social, recreational, athletic, and cultural events each year, but 5th Reunion volunteers will plan events tailored to the interests of your classmates. We need your ideas! Suggest activities and events and volunteer to organize them. Do you want to hike up Snake Mountain, play corn hole on Battell Beach, jam with class musicians, organize a class panel, or barbecue at Lake Dunmore? Contact Carly Bidner, 5th Reunion staff coordinator, and share your ideas.

Get the Word Out

The more class members who return, the more fun your Middlebury Reunion will be, so let your friends know you’ll be there and encourage them to join you.

Alumni tell us the number-one reason they returned for a Middlebury Reunion was hearing from a classmate, so start contacting classmates. You don’t have to be on the committee to get the word out. Reconnect on the class Facebook group and join the Middlebury Reunion Facebook event. Share information about Reunion on your social channels. Text, call, email, and message your classmates.

      

Be a Part of Your Class Gift

Your first Reunion provides an opportunity to reflect on the impact Middlebury has had on your life. The College presented you with opportunities to learn and grow, to find your place in the world, and to start relationships that will stand the test of time. When you make a gift in honor of your 5th Reunion, you’ll help to guarantee that the students of today and tomorrow will be able to enjoy the same transformative Middlebury experience.

Gifts of every size make a difference and count toward the class participation goal. The Class of 2014 made it to 34 percent, and your classmates want to beat that number. They’ve set a class participation goal of 44 percent. Let’s do it!
