About Reunion 2021

  • Can Reunion classes of 0s and 5s combine with 1s and 6s in June 2021?

    Unfortunately, the Cornell campus does not have the capacity to host 2020 and 2021 Reunions concurrently. Nearly 8,000 people attend Reunion weekend annually. Potential restrictions on the size of in-person gatherings in 2021 would further impact our ability to accommodate large groups.

  • Can Cornell host a separate Reunion for all 0s and 5s classes in June 2021 on a different weekend from the 1s and 6s Reunion weekend, June 10-13?

    Under normal circumstances, campus is bustling with activity throughout the summer. If we're able to gather on campus, the timing of summer events—Commencement, summer sessions, youth camps and conferences—does not allow for two separate full Reunion weekends.

  • Why accommodate a special 5th Reunion for young alumni classes of 2015 and 2016 in June 2021?

    Alumni Affairs is grateful to the Class of 2016 for shifting their 5th Reunion celebration one weekend earlier (June 3-6) and inviting the Class of 2015 to join them (if we are able to host in-person Reunion gatherings for 2021). Doing so frees up much needed on-campus housing accommodations for those wishing to attend Reunion 2021, June 10-13. The 5th Reunion is often the first large class-focused alumni event for our young alumni and is critical to continued engagement with the university and as a class.

  • Can I come back to Reunion 2021 if I am not from a class ending in 1 or 6?

    Should we be able to gather on campus for Reunion 2021, we will offer the opportunity for alumni to register for Reunion as Non-Reunion Year attendees, although on-campus housing for Non-Reunion Year alumni cannot be guaranteed.
