Plan a Reunion

Does your graduating class have a milestone anniversary coming up? Whether you’re celebrating your 5-, 10- or 25-year reunion, advance preparation is the key to a successful event.


  • Give yourself at least one year to organize your event.
  • Create an organizing committee (three or four people works best).
  • Put one person in charge.
  • Decide where you will hold the reunion.
  • Make choices based on the expected number of attendees, where they are coming from and their age.
  • Determine the format of the event (brunch, luncheon, sit-down dinner, cocktail reception, buffet, etc.)
  • Use social media to get the word out to as many former classmates as you can.

Budget management

  • Work out a precise budget, with the goal of ensuring the event is self-financed (zero deficit).

Costs to factor in

  • Food (including taxes and gratuities)
  • Alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages (including taxes and gratuities)
  • Hall rental
  • Music and entertainment
  • Swag bags, door prizes
  • Equipment rentals (tables, chairs, audiovisual equipment, etc.)
  • Other planning-related expenses
