Homecoming and Reunion Weekend 2018

October 11-14, 2018‌

With the School of Dental Medicine's 125th Anniversary now complete, we look forward to even more celebration next year with our alumni from class years ending in 3 and 8!

‌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.

‌Your Alumni Association invites you to come home to CWRU for Homecoming/Reunion, which pays tribute to the unique CWRU experience. Join dental school alumni, 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.

Keep up with all Homecoming and Reunion news and events by liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter!

Reunion Giving

Reunion is an exceptionally joyous and festive time to return to campus to celebrate past experiences and memories made while at the School of Dental Medicine. It is a time to reflect on your accomplishments and bonds, and it is also a time to celebrate being a part of the university’s community.


The generosity behind the reunion class gift is a critical piece of the School of Dental Medicine’s Annual Fund.  As much as reuniting is about reminiscing and invigorating old friendships, it is also about looking and working towards the future. Your commitment to give back, at any level or to any designation, ensures that our School’s reputation for excellence in education continues for generations to come. Supporting your class, in any amount, supports the participation goal.


A reunion presents a unique opportunity to come together to make an especially meaningful gift that will significantly impact the School of Dental Medicine’s vital priorities, including:

  • 295 DMD Students and 83 Postgraduate Residents.
  • Student-Aid and Scholarships
  • Cutting-Edge Research
  • Community Outreach and Increased Clinical Care
  • Facility Enhancements

For more information on Reunion Giving or to make a gift, please contact:

Office of Development and Alumni Relations at (216) 368-3480

You may also make your gift online at, by

Congratulations on your reunion and thank you for your support!
