Alumni Weekend

Join us!

We are excited to welcome alumni from around the country and world to Alumni Weekend 2021. This timing will provide opportunities for alumni to see firsthand your alma mater’s exciting changes and enduring traditions, attend sports and theatre events, and most importantly, connect with classmates and schoolmates from your Annie Wright days. While we welcome all alumni, we particularly encourage the 10th reunion Class of ’11, the 25th reunion Class of ’96, and the 50th reunion Class of ’71, to join us.

The Ties that Bind
For 2021, Alumni Weekend will also celebrate all years with the same tie color as the senior class. Next fall the senior class will be...REDS! So peppers, pomegranates, strawberries and all you other red fruits or veggies, please join your fellow reds at Alumni Weekend 2021.
