Golden Alumni Reunion Weekend

PLEASE NOTE:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Golden Alumni Weekend (May 15-17, 2020), has been rescheduled to May 21-23, 2021. Reunion Celebrants who have already registered for the weekend will have an option to defer their payment to 2021, receive a refund, or donate their registration fee to the Le Moyne College Fund. We appreciate your flexibility and support.

The Le Moyne Alumni Association looks forward to welcoming the Classes of 1970 and 1971 home to the Heights for Golden Alumni Reunion Weekend May 21-23, 2021, which will also incorporate a celebration of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the College. At this special three-day event, classmates from the College's 50-year reunion classes and their guests will reconnect and celebrate together back where it all began, as well as enjoy a special opportunity to process in the College's 71st Commencement ceremony.
