Come and join your 1968 classmates for Homecoming 2018, October 19-21, on the Knox College campus to celebrate the 50th Reunion!

Co-chairs Lee Balgemann, Mary Mangieri Burgland, Chip Evans, John Heyer, and Kathy St Cyr have agreed to serve along with a large 50th Reunion Committee. They are excited about planning a fun and memorable weekend. Besides the 50th Reunion dinner, there will be a reception, recognition at Homecoming Convocation, and induction into the FYC (Fifty Year Club). 

Watch a fun video of your classmates inviting you back to Knox for the 50th Reunion!

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, 2016 and June 30, 2019 from members of the Class of 1968 will count toward the 50th Reunion Class Gift. The Committee also has set a goal to reach 50 percent giving particpation, so if you haven't made a gift since before June 30, 2016, your contribution will especially help attain this objective.
