Wheaton's tradition of inviting alumni back to campus to reunite with classmates and alma mater began in 1862, with the first alumni reunion coinciding with Commencement. Reunion weekends are one of the strongest ways to reconnect with the friends, faculty, and facilities that impacted your formative years at Wheaton College. Return to campus to celebrate what has changed, and what has remained the same, for Christ and His Kingdom.

During Homecoming Weekend in the fall, alumni return for their 5th through 25th reunions. Cheer on your favorite Thunder sports team, check up on your favorite department, and see how campus has changed. Enjoy this family-friendly weekend with students and alumni of all ages.

In the spring, Alumni Weekend is held on Commencement Weekend. Wheaton hosts alumni celebrating their 30th through 75th reunions. Come back to campus and remember your years at Wheaton. Reminisce with classmates, strengthen old friendships, and see how God has been working in their lives, even as the next group of students graduate and join the ranks of alumni everywhere.

We hope to see you soon!
