More than 2,000 visitors are expected on campus for ReUnion this weekend. Together, they’ll enjoy traditional favorites like the Alumni Parade, fireworks show and Gala Dinner.

There’ll also be presentations from notable alumni in a variety of fields and on Saturday, the official dedication of Messa House (from Blue House).

"The weather is beautiful, attendance is on track  and we know we are well on our way to success as we roll out the red carpet for our oldest alumni of 1935, to our newest of 2009," says Tammy  Messercola, director of Alumni Relations. "We begin the Memorial Day weekend with a ceremony remembering our veterans, and special recognition to our Union College V-5/V-12, who are celebrating 67 years since they were here as part of that unit on the Union grounds."
