SCU Alumni Association

8,439 Alumni—4 Days—1 Family!

Santa Clara University is committed to educating the whole person. And as an Alumni Association, we feel you deserve a reunion experience to match your academic, social, spiritual, athletic, extra-curricular, and community experience as a student. In that spirit, we are bringing back the Grand Reunion—a weekend we hope will inspire you to remember your Santa Clara experience; reconnect with your classmates, the campus, and the SCU family; and renew your commitment to your fellow Broncos and the University.

Grand Reunion Weekend

The Grand Reunion Weekend will take place this Oct. 15–18. Ten classes (undergraduates from 1964, 1969, 1974, 1979, 1984, 1989, 1994, 1999, 2004, and 2009) will be celebrating this fall, marking the first time since 2003 all our reunion alumni will be on campus at the same time. (The 50th Reunion will continue to commemorate the Golden Weekend separately, and the Class of 1959 should plan to come back to campus Sept. 11-13.)

Something for all Broncos!

Not celebrating an undergraduate class reunion this year? We hope you will still consider being part of this exciting weekend. We are scheduling activities for families, graduate alumni, students groups, and all Broncos who want to participate in the inclusive events and programs we have planned. Specific activities include the President’s Speaker Series featuring Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano ’79, the annual Homecoming Picnic, Academic Showcases with some of your favorite faculty, Midnight Madness including a Ruff Rider Reunion (to officially kick off the men’s basketball season), career networking opportunities, Campus (now) and Memory Lane (then) Tours, the Global Health Symposium, student entertainment, renewal of marriage vows—plus school reunions for business, engineering, and arts and sciences—and much more!

Bigger and better

Our goal is for you to be visually, emotionally, and intellectually engaged by the campus, the activities, and the people at the Grand Reunion. We will create ways for you to interact meaningfully with your classmates, SCU faculty, current students, and alumni from other classes. Our hope is that you will enhance your understanding of Santa Clara’s history and traditions while inspiring your passion and enthusiasm for the University today.

The Grand Reunion Weekend will be a weekend like no other! Stay tuned and be sure to check our Web site for all the latest schedules and information:
