Reunion Weekend

Reunion Weekend
June 3 - 5, 2022

Mark your calendars early for next year's reunion weekend. 

The weekend of June 3 - 5 will be packed with exciting events both on- and off-campus. It's been too long since we've been able to welcome you to campus for a reunion celebration, so these events are sure to be worth the trip back to Newport. Return to campus and reconnect with your classmates. All alumni are welcome to attend, no matter of class year!

Lodging in our dorm rooms is available with event registration! We look forward to having you stay on campus again this year.
