What should I wear?

The 50th Reunion Weekend is a festive recreational event. Dress casually and comfortably. 

In past years, many alumni have chosen to wear a sportcoat or jacket and tie for the class photo.

Anyone participating in Saturday's Commencement exercises should wear light layers so they can adjust to temperature changes when they are seated with other Golden Hawks under the Maguire Lawn tent during the graduation ceremony.

Thursday: 9 a.m. - 7 p.m.
Friday: 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Saturday: 8 a.m. - 7 p.m.

Class Gift

How can I contribute to my class gift?

Click here to make your gift. If you have questions or would prefer to submit your gift by phone, contact Maura Slatowski at (610) 660-1244 or mslatows@sju.edu.

I am making a gift and my company will match it. Does the match count toward our class gift total?

Both your gift and the match your company makes will count in your Reunion Class Gift total. Be sure to contact your company’s human resources office prior to making your gift to determine whether or not your company matches. A company match is an excellent way to increase the value of your Reunion gift.

What is the Ignatian Circle, and how can I learn more about becoming a member?
