Each year, Eckerd alumni come from near and far to celebrate with classmates, catch up with former professors and see the campus they once called home.
Last year, more than 450 alumni and friends attended Reunion Weekend, and we have no doubt that 2019 will be another great year! All alumni are welcome to attend, and we will celebrate the milestone reunion of classes whose years end with 4 or 9.
Each registered alumna/us or guest receives a name badge at check-in that serves as your entry ticket to events. For a swift check-in experience, alumni are encouraged to preregister; however, day-of registration will be available during the specified hours on the reunion schedule.
