Each year, the academic calendar culminates with Commencement—the celebration that recongizes student achievement. Flanking this day of glory is Reunion, where former undergraduates flock to the Hilltop Campus to renew old friendships and to make new ones. Reunion offers myriad special events, from the unique 50th Reunion Medallion Ceremony in Graham Chapel, to campus tours, to an array of fascinating discussions with faculty and classmates, to gathering in the Quad before parading with fellow clasmates to the Gala. Through Reunion, alumni and friends reconnect to the people, the place, the experience that is particularly Washington University.

Members of the 50th Reunion class march during the Great Bear Parade on their way to the Saturday evening Reunion Gala. Each member of the 50th Reunion class received a medallion during a ceremony in Graham Chapel earlier in the week.
