Save the date! The Class of 1970 will be celebrating its 50-year reunion with the current graduating class during Commencement weekend!

Commencement Weekend

Friday & Saturday, May 22 & 23

IMPORTANT: Citing public health concerns, Calvin University has yet to make a decision on whether Commencement Week activities, including this 50-year reunion, will go on as scheduled. The decision will be made by April 23, 2020. As of this writing, we will proceed with planning the reunion as if it will happen; however, whether we host the reunion as planned or postpone to a later date will be determined by the university. Please CLICK HERE and select "Commencement" for updated information on Commencement Week activities. We will also keep you updated as we receive new information.

Please join us in celebrating the 50–Year Reunion of the Class of 1970 during Commencement weekend. There will be a special anniversary medallion presentation, recognition of our class at Commencement, as well as special activities planned especially for us.

You are warmly invited to bring a guest to each of these events, even if they are not a Calvin graduate or member of your class!
