The Class of 1967 will return to the Knox College campus to celebrate their 50th Reunion at Homecoming 2017, October 27-29. Carol Romsa Parke and Nancy Rabenstein Pielemeier have agreed to head up the committee as Reunion co-chairs and the 50th Reunion Committee is already starting to make plans for this milestone event.

One way they plan to commemorate the occasion is to create a 50th Reunion booklet, which will include classmate bios, then and now photos, and candid photos from your Knox days. Please take a few minutes to think about your life since your College days, your favorite Knox memories, and what valuable lessons you learned at Knox, and then fill out the form below. Your participation is vital!

Fill out 50th Reunion Questionnaire here.

It is also important to make your hotel reservations early. Hotel rooms disappear quickly at Homecoming so don't wait.

Make your hotel reservations now.

In addition to planning an extraordinary weekend full of special events, the Reunion Committee is also 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 to Knox from the Class of 1967 will count toward the 50th Reunion Class gift. The counting period for gifts runs through June 30, 2018. The 50th Reunion Committee has also set a goal to meet or exceed 50 percent participation, so please make your gift today.
