Each year Williams proudly celebrates the accomplishments, friendships and generous support of alumni commemorating their 25th reunion. Classmates celebrating their 25th are honored–along with members of the 50th reunion class–throughout Reunion Weekend in June, especially during the Annual Meeting of the Society of Alumni. In celebration of the event, the 25th reunion class presents a reunion gift to the president of the College.

1) 25TH REUNION FUND CLASS GIFT – 25th Reunion Fund Committee
To celebrate its 25th reunion, the class will present to the College at reunion a special commemorative gift. Over the years, recent 25th classes have made gifts to the college ranging from $2 million to $10 million that have helped to fund initiatives such as faculty endowment, scholarships, new construction and building renovations. This year, the class of ’93 will seek continued support for the Alumni Fund and will also be supporting the Class of 1993 Fund for Integrative Wellbeing.
Gifts and pledges to the 1993 Fund for Integrative Wellbeing and to the Alumni Fund will count toward the 25th Reunion Fund total. The magnitude of individual gifts varies, based on each donor’s financial capacity and his or her inclination to give to Williams. Nonetheless, most class members who participate in the 25th Reunion Fund stretch to make the largest commitment they have ever considered to Williams. You can make your 25th Reunion gift or automatic recurring pledge online now using the 1993 25th Giving page. Or you can make your 25th Reunion pledge by completing the 1993 Statement of Intent. For more information, contact one of the ’93 class fundraising leaders listed below or one of the 25th Reunion staff above.
2) 25TH REUNION CLASS BOOK – Book Committee
The class also produces a book featuring autobiographical essays from its members. The book is conceived and edited by the Class Book Committee and often includes historical photos, comments from the president, and essays written by members of the class. This keepsake is sent in the spring, prior to Reunion Weekend, to all members of the class, regardless of whether they plan to attend reunion. The 25th Reunion Office oversees and guides this project to completion.
We are up to 80 submissions from classmates but Kathrine and Dennis Kuo, 25th Reunion book co-chairs, know many of you are working on your submissions, so the deadline has been extended. The new deadline for participating in the ’93 book is November 15, 2017! For submission guidlines please click here. For more information please contact Kathrine or Dennis below.
3) REUNION WEEKEND – Weekend Committee
Led by the Reunion Chair, and with the help of classmates and the College, the Reunion Weekend Committee plans and coordinates the schedule of activities for Reunion Weekend. The College welcomes individual alumni as well as their families, and a variety of special activities are scheduled for all.

4) COMMUNICATIONS – Communications Committee and “Reconnect” Team
The Communications Committee serves as the focal point for communications and publicity for the 25th reunion. Key responsibilities include: development and maintenance of a class Web site; development of an e-mail group; and development of a telephone chain. The Reconnect Team works with the Communications Committee to collect information about classmates, provide a clearinghouse for that information, and disseminate such information to the rest of the class.
