Reunion Classes (those class years ending in '0 and '5) are competing to win the Reunion Challenge! The class with the highest participation rate in giving (number of gifts/number of alumni in class) will be recognized at the Reunion Award Ceremony and will win a special prize for their whole class. To kick off the challenge, a generous anonymous alumnus has put forth a matching gift: the first $50,000 gifts made will be matched dollar for dollar.

Learn more about the Reunion Challenge here.
