REUNION DECEMBER UPDATE
We’ve had a good response to the early notification of our 2017 reunion and several folks have volunteered to help with the planning. It should be fun!
Based on the feedback we’ve received, we are making a slight change to the schedule.
The Reunion will now begin at 1:00 PM on Thursday the 18th of May and conclude with lunch on Friday the 19th. The President’s reception and banquet will be held on Thursday, May 18. Options for other events (cruise, baseball game, etc.) are being planning for Friday afternoon and evening. This should make it easier for anyone who would like to stay over for commencement on Saturday, May 20th.
We are also working on building in an opportunity for individual classes to have their own mini-gatherings – word is that the class of 1957 (60th) is already planning theirs! How about your class? We are happy to help you make connections if you want to plan one for your class.
Registration materials, sign ups, pricing, etc. will be posted in early January.
Hope to see you here!
Calling all classes!

On May 18, 2017, we will be hosting our first all-class reunion in many years. Whether it is your 50th, 40th, 10th, 5th, or first, all alums are invited to come to campus during ABSW’s commencement week for a grand reunion.
Special programs, awards, the Drexler Lecture, an address by the president, worship, class photos, and time with the faculty are all being planned. We are also looking into some optional side trips for those who want to come early or stay over.
In the coming weeks we will be posting the details. Watch this site for that information and online registration.
