Celebrations and Memories at Reunion Weekend
Reunion Weekend 2012, which took place Oct. 12 to 14, was a resounding success, with more than 700 alumni and friends gathering at a variety of events throughout the weekend. The fun began right away as alumni who graduated 50 or more years ago came together for the Reunion Luncheon on Friday, Oct. 12. DePaul’s president, the Rev. Dennis H. Holtschneider, C.M., offered congratulatory remarks, and more than 80 alumni were inducted into the Fifty Year Club. That evening, alumni from the past five years shared stories and memories during their special celebration at Moe’s Cantina.
On Saturday night, guests convened at the Palmer House Hilton for the Reunion Celebration, which featured cocktail receptions in honor of each anniversary class, as well as exclusive receptions for alumni who were Campus Recreation student employees or resident advisors. College of Law alumni reconnected with old friends and made new ones during their own reunion celebration at the Hotel InterContinental.
Sunday Mass, followed by brunch, closed out Reunion Weekend 2012. DMaC, an all-male, student-run a capella group, provided lively entertainment as alumni and friends mingled over brunch. The celebration will begin all over again next year, when graduates from class years ending in “3” and “8” will return to their alma mater for Reunion Weekend 2013.
