Class Letter

Our 25th Reunion!

Sent July 2022 via email

Dear Class of 1997 Classmates,

Our Kalamazoo College 25th reunion is October 21-23, 2022 and a celebratory weekend is being planned reconnecting with each other and our K community. Below are five things you can do right now to connect with our class and the College before our reunion.

  • Plan to attend October 21-23, 2022. Make your travel arrangements and book your hotel room now. You can find a list of hotels offering special prices for K alumni.
    • Friday, October 21 at 7 p.m.: All Hornet Gathering at Bell’s
    • Saturday, October 22 in the morning: Reunion Photo
    • Saturday, October 22 at 6:30 p.m.: Reunion Gathering at the Light Fine Arts Building
  • Join the Class of 1997 Facebook group. Our class Facebook group is a great way to connect with each other by sharing a reunion update, posting photos of our time at K and discussing our reunion plans.
  • Help ensure each of our classmates gets personally invited. In addition to coming back yourself, please consider asking your friends to do the same. Personal outreach is the most effective way to ensure we get the Class of 1997 back on campus. If you are interested in reaching out to our classmates, please let us know.

Please check your email and the homecoming website for reunion updates in the months to come. Online registration opens mid September and you will receive an email and postcard in the mail when registration is open.

We hope you will join us for what promises to be a fun and exciting weekend for our class!

All the best,

Alexandra (Foley) Altman and Corey Schultz
