More alumni returned for Reunions this year than at any point in Dartmouth history. Five classes broke records as 2,666 alumni attended, surpassing the record number of 2,546 set just last year. More than 4,400 total guests representing twelve Dartmouth classes returned.

The numbers for the Classes of 1978 and 2008 are especially remarkable. The '78s shattered the previous record of 171 with 262 alumni "coming home" for their 35th Reunion. The '08s surpassed the 5th Reunion record by an equally impressive margin, with more than 50 percent of their class returning.
