Class of 1971 50th Reunion 

Can you believe it's been 50 years since you graduated from Knox College?! What better way to celebrate than by returning to Knox to see classmates and friends during Homecoming Weekend, October 8-9, 2021

Reunion chair, Jerry Tatar, and the 1971 50th Reunion Committee have been busy organizing special events to mark this special milestone Reunion.

Look for more details about special 50th Reunion events over the summer, but don’t wait to make your hotel reservation, complete and return the 50th Reunion Questionnaire, and support our Class Gift.

50th Reunion Questionnaire

As part of your 50th Reunion celebration, we’re putting together a Reunion booklet with classmate biographies and Knox memories. Please complete the form and include a current photo—not required, but they make the booklet much more fun!

The deadline for submissions is July 15, 2021, so make sure to return your completed form by that date so it can be included in the booklet.  

Fill out the questionnaire!  

50th Reunion Class Gift

In addition to planning special events, the Reunion Committee is committed to encouraging classmates to support the 50th Reunion Class Gift. 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, 2019 and June 30, 2022, from members of the Class of 1971 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, 2019, your contribution is especially important.

Would you like to learn more about making a gift from an IRA, annuity, or another special gift? Contact Beverly Holmes at 309-341-7755 or bholmes@knox.edu.

Hotel Reservations

Need to make a hotel reservation? See the list of local hotels

Room blocks were made at select local hotels, so ask for a room for Knox Homecoming or for a room in the Knox Homecoming block. Make sure to contact the local number instead of the 800 number. Additional resources might be airbnb.com or vrbo.com for private bookings.

Reconnect with Classmates and Friends

Looking to connect with classmates? Use 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 knect@knox.edu for more help.
