In Pursuit of Excellence

Dartmouth College Recognizes with Deep Appreciation the Extraordinary Achievements of


Recipient of the 2015-16 Honorable Mention, Classes 25 Years and Younger in Recognition of an Outstanding Mini-Reunion Program

The Mini-Reunion Chairs Association is comprised of all class mini-reunion chairs – a group of individuals spanning seven decades and the globe – who are selected by their classmates and generously volunteer their time building and maintaining the bond between their classmates and the College. Mini-Reunions are integral to providing Dartmouth alumni with opportunities for classmates and friends to gather, reflect, and generate enthusiasm.

Mini-reunion chairs foster classmate connections by building upon the legendary ties that Dartmouth alumni feel toward alma mater. The mini-reunion program, in turn, encourages alumni to both return to campus for major events such as Homecoming and Reunion and to provide critical – and generous – financial support to the many classes following in their footsteps.

It is, therefore, our honor and pleasure to recognize and thank the Class of 2015 for a strong start to its mini-reunion program. Recognizing and adopting best practices during their first year as alumni, members of the Class of 2015 held six mini-reunions which were attended by 325 classmates. The Class kicked off its mini-reunion efforts with its Year Zero Reunion at Homecoming in Hanover just four months after graduation. Soon after, it expanded its reach to Boston, New York, and San Francisco with single-day, multiple-city gatherings. In the spring, the Class of 2015 added additional layers to its offerings with a brewery tour. This approach, combined with streamlined event marketing and outreach, led to impressive attendance.

Congratulations on an exemplary first year of mini-reunions!
