Call for photos and stories

Your reunion planning team is looking for photos and memories from 1970-1974! Please send photos (with one-sentence description) to alumni@calvin.edu for the dinner slideshow, and also send your favorite memories (a few sentences or paragraph) to alumni@calvin.edu for the emcee to consider to set up the story-telling time.


Registration is $70 per participant. We want to ensure that all those who desire to attend the reunion are able to participate! If this cost would prohibit you from attending the reunion, please reach out to alumni@calvin.edu so we can work with you on appropriate arrangements.

Medallion Ceremony

What is the Medallion Ceremony? Think of it as a Commencement re-enactment of sorts. Immediately following the worship service, members of the class will line up. Each person's name will be read by alumni director Jeff Haverdink, and as you walk across the front of the chapel, you'll be presented with a keepsake Calvin University 50-year Reunion medallion by a member of the Alumni Association Board. Class members will wear these medallions for the class photo and when recognized in the Class of 2024's Commencement Ceremony on Saturday afternoon.


Email alumni@calvin.edu or call (616) 526-6142 with questions.


Please register by Friday, April 26, 2024.
