Countdown to Homecoming and Reunion Weekend 2017





Homecoming/Reunion: October 5-8, 2017

Dental School may seem like ages ago or it may feel like just yesterday that you were walking through the school on your way to class. Regardless of how you, and the world around you, has changed since graduation, your college experience is etched into your memory. This Homecoming and Reunion the School of Dental Medicine will be celebrating the 125th Anniversary of the school.

Your Alumni Association invites you to come home to CWRU for Homecoming/Reunion, which pays tribute to the unique CWRU experience. Join us, and alumni from the entire university, for a dynamic weekend to see what has changed, what new things the dental school has to offer, and to catch up with classmates and friends you may not have seen since the day you graduated. Homecoming/Reunion isn’t just for reunion classes—all members of our alumni community are welcome to come back to campus. We hope that you will accept our invitation to return, reconnect and reminisce at Homecoming/Reunion, and that you will spread the word to your classmates and friends. We look forward to seeing you there.

A new tradition begins:

Celebrate your reunion as part of Homecoming. The Office of Development and Alumni Relations is more than happy to assist you in planning your reunion event to be held during the weekend. Here are just some of the things we can do for you:

  • Provide you with class lists including addresses, phone numbers and email
  • Help promote your reunion event by publishing information on our website
  • Coordinate mailings and provide mailing materials
  • Offer ideas for locations and in some cases assist in arrangements
  • Take photographs at your event
  • Coordinate having the Dean attend your event
  • Assist in planning class gifts for reunion giving

Please contact Ms. Sara Fields at or 216.368.3924 for assistance in planning your reunion.

Get involved! A reunion celebration is only a success if your classmates come back to celebrate with you. We need a great group of volunteers who are willing to help create a buzz leading up to the Homecoming and Reunion Celebration. No matter the amount of time you are able to commit, we have an opportunity for you!

The success of Homecoming and Reunion depends in large part on the active participation and commitment of Class Representatives. Reunions are typically promoted by a committee of class volunteers. In the past, classes have found that having large, active committees not only makes reunion promotion run smoothly, but also encourages more involvement in Homecoming.


The staff in the Office of Development and Alumni Relations is available throughout the reunion planning process to assist you. Their goal is to work with Class Representatives to ensure a fun and successful reunion.
