We look forward to welcoming all alumni back to campus during fall to celebrate our upcoming reunion classes (any class ending in 5 or 0). 

Are you interested in helping with your next class reunion? Volunteering as a class ambassador is a great way to get involved. Class ambassadors help with outreach to classmates and can help with details to make reunion even more special for their class. 

Please contact Nicole Clewer, Director of Annual Giving and Alumni Engagement at or 815-394-5111 if you are interested in volunteering. 

Online registration for reunion will open late summer of 2020.
