Reunion is a very special time. It is about reconnecting with classmates and friends, revisiting familiar spots on campus, and learning about Hotchkiss today.
For alumni in pre-1967 classes: There is no registration fee for activities and meals, but you must still make your reservation for reunion and on-campus housing. Please note that the Class of 1967 will celebrate reunion in October 2017.
If you have questions or need help making plans, please contact Kamaren Suwijn, Assistant Director of Alumni Relations, or phone (860-435-3114).
Schedule of Events
The Hotchkiss Reunion program includes a wide variety of activities - workshops with alumni and faculty speakers, tours of the campus, family activities, and, of course, plenty of time to socialize with friends and classmates.
On-campus housing will be available in the dormitories during June Reunions on a first-come, first-served basis. If you prefer to stay in an off-campus hotel or inn, please see our list of local accommodations. We strongly encourage you to make your reservations as early as possible. Hotels and inns in the Lakeville/Salisbury area often sell out more than a year in advance.
All Alumni are Invited
Even if your class is not scheduled for a Reunion this year, you are welcome to join us. If you graduated early, late, or simply feel close to a class besides your own, you are welcome to come and adopt a reunion class for the weekend.
Calling all Entrepreneurs
Do you have a idea or product you would like to demonstrate at the Alumni Marketplace during Reunion? This is a wonderful opportunity to show off your hard work and expand your fan base! Please contact Kamaren Suwijn.
Hotchkiss alumni TOM REISS ‘82 will be holding a book discussion on the historical biography, The Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayal and the Real Count of Monte Cristo, for which he has won a Pulitzer Prize. This discussion will be co-led by TOM DRAKE, Dean of Faculty and Instructor in History. Guests will have an opportunity to have their books signed.
