Friday, June 3 - Sunday, June 5, 2022
The College is thrilled to welcome you back to campus for a fun-filled, in-person Reunion Weekend this June! This year we are celebrating class years that end in a 2 or 7. For our class years that end in 0, 1, 5, and 6 – we haven’t forgotten you! Our alumni who missed their in-person Reunion in 2020 and 2021 have a special invitation to attend Reunion 2022.
Schedule of Events A preliminary schedule for the weekend can be found below. We are working on adding events to the schedule and a final version will be available in mid-May.
Reunion Registration Each 2 and 7 class will have a special link to their unique online registration form available by visiting their class page (see left hand navigation bar). For alumni with no email a registration form has been mailed.
**All other class years can register for reunion here.**
All-Inclusive Pricing In order to ensure the best possible experience for our valued alumni we are offering a low all-inclusive price for reunion which includes food for most events and a limited amount of drink tokens. The all-inclusive price is mandatory regardless of how many events you attend unless your only event is the P-Knight Party. Alumni who register for the all-inclusive package will receive a Reunion 2022 commemorative cup.
Golfing Enthusiasts Sugarbush Resort Golf Club is offering a special discount for Saint Michael’s alumni who wish to play a round during Reunion Weekend. For 18 holes and a cart it’s only $65 between June 3-5, a nearly 50% discount off the regular rate! If you would like a voucher please email email@example.com.
Registration Refunds We cannot offer refunds after May 30. We apologize for the inconvenience.
