Class of 1970 50th Reunion to Celebrate
50th Reunion at Homecoming 2021 

Join Reunion co-chairs, Rhayma Blake and Nancy Hoover Debelius, along with the 50th Reunion Committee, for Homecoming Weekend, October 8-9, 2021

The Reunion Committee is organizing special events to mark this special Reunion, so make plans now to join your friends and classmates. Don't forget to reserve your hotel room, complete the 50th Reunion Questionnaire, and consider supporting our Class Gift.

Look for more information about Homecoming events over the summer. 

50th Reunion Questionnaire

As part of your 50th Reunion celebration, a keepsake Reunion booklet will be created featuring short classmate biographies and favorite Knox College memories. Please complete the form and include a current photo—not required, but they make the booklet much more fun!

Since the Reunion date has changed, we’ve extended the deadline for submissions. The new deadline is June 1, 2021, to be included in the booklet. Some of this information may also be used in upcoming issues of the FYC Bulletin.

Fill out the questionnaire!

In addition to planning special events, the Reunion Committee is committed to encouraging classmates to consider a meaningful 50th Reunion contribution. What better time to reflect upon the role that Knox College has had in your life than during your 50th Reunion? A significant gift can express your gratitude for your Knox experience during this milestone year and it can enrich the Knox experience for future generations of students. All gifts given to Knox between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2021, from members of the Class of 1970 will count toward the 50th Reunion Class Gift. The Committee also has set a goal to reach 50 percent giving participation, so if you haven't made a gift since before June 30, 2018, your contribution will especially help attain this objective.

Reconnect with Classmates and Friends

Looking for classmates? You can connect with them and other Knox alumni by using the KNect app on your phone or desktop computer. The app is available to download from both Apple and Google Play Stores.

The alumni directory is searchable by name, class year, company, city, or state. While the app is available publicly to download, users must authenticate with College data to access any information in the app. If your initial login is made with an email in our records, you'll be approved automatically. If not, your request will be held until it is authenticated by Alumni Engagement.

Still have questions? You can find answers to many questions on the KNect app help page. You can also email for more help.

You can also connect with classmates on the Knox1970 Facebook group!
