Mini-Reunions 101

Mini-reunions are integral to providing Dartmouth alumni with opportunities for classmates and friends to gather, reflect, and generate enthusiasm. The mini-reunion chairs and committee members are selected by their classmates and generously volunteer their time building and maintaining the bond between their classmates and the College as the primary event planners for each class.

What is a Mini-Reunion?

A mini-reunion is a non-reunion gathering of classmates that has been widely publicized in advance of the event, requires some effort to organize, and is hosted with the purpose of reuniting classmates.

Role of the Mini-Reunion Chair

  • Foster connections between classmates ’round the girdled Earth
  • Plan and organize all non-reunion activities for the class
  • Engage classmates as members of your mini-reunion committee (e.g. city captains) to help coordinate events in regions with large numbers of classmates

Mini-Reunion Requirements

  • All mini-reunions must be open to all members of the class and not an exclusive subset of the class
  • Mini-reunions should be widely publicized and may include targeted marketing to classmates in a specified region
  • Events occurring over multiple days (such as a destination mini reunion) or a recurring series (such as monthly luncheons) shall be considered a single event
  • If an event takes place in multiple locations (such as class birthdays), each location shall be considered an individual mini-reunion event
  • Mini-reunions may be held virtually
  • Classes are expected to plan a minimum of three (3) mini-reunions per year


Chairs should track the date, location, number of classmates in attendance, and total number of people attending (including guests) for each mini-reunion. This information, along with a brief description of each event, should be reported to the class executive and will be necessary for completion of the year-end Class Activities Report.
