Statement on Reunion 2021
In consultation with University leadership and the Emergency Operations Center, in-person events for Reunion 2021 have been postponed. Despite progress toward deploying vaccines against COVID-19, travel disruptions and restrictions on gatherings are likely to remain throughout the spring.
Class reunion committee and volunteer feedback was also taken into consideration, and we are grateful for their support of this decision. These groups are already discussing options for virtual gatherings this spring to recognize milestone anniversaries. Plans for Reunion 2022 are in development and details will be shared once these are finalized.
Please note that this reunion announcement does not impact commencement planning in any way.
University leadership and others are considering all options to help recognize the classes of 2021 and 2020 in appropriate and safe ways.
We expect that this news does not come as a surprise, given the current health conditions. However, we also know how important it is for the Colgate community to gather in person, and we look forward to being together next spring — we will share those plans as soon as they are available.
As we navigate this pandemic, the Colgate community is grateful for the relationships with and support from our alumni.
Until we see you again, thank you.

I didn’t think it was possible, but I left Reunion on Sunday even more in love with Colgate than when I arrived a few days prior.Joe Spina ’14
