We will also be offering family housing in the Taft Cottages. This option provides access to apartment-style accommodations. Each apartment has one double occupancy room and two single occupancy rooms.

Our reunion classes just keep getting larger and we anticipate campus to be at maximum capacity for Reunion Weekend 2023. We are excited to announce an All-Reunion Soiree that will include all classes. The soiree will take place on the evening of Saturday, May 27, in the Lowry Center. Special class dinners are being planned for our 50th milestone reunion class of 1973 and the Perennial reunion class (celebrating a reunion beyond their 50th.)

Due to the anticipated large numbers of alumni eager to return to campus, we are unable to honor any housing requests at this time. Thank you for your understanding.
