Organizing a reunion

A UNB reunion involves UNB friends coming together after having been separated for some time. Reunions might involve your classmates, people who lived with you in residence, played a sport with you, belonged to the same club or society, or simply might be a group of friends who have no special connection other than being your friends.

Like many UNB reunions, your reunion might take place on one of UNB's two campuses, but it might also occur at a southern resort, on a ski hill, or in someone's home. While being back on campus can add an important dimension to a reunion, it is important to remember that UNB reunions may occur anywhere and at any time, and with any number of people, great or few.

Planning your reunion

1. Decide who it is you want to reunite and and some ideas of what you might like to do.

2. Recruit a few classmates/volunteers on whom you can rely for help.

3. Connect with the Alumni Office and let us know of your desire to hold a reunion. (Ideally this will be done at least six months prior to the desired reunion date.) We can assist you with planning items such as: providing lists of classmates, booking facilities, assisting with planning logistics, developing a registration site, promoting your event, and more! 

4. Make your plans and book your reunion facilities - we can help!

5. Promote your reunion to your classmates and friends. While the Association will assist with mailings (depending on the size of the reunion) and other marketing activities, remember that the personal touch will make the difference. Be prepared to make phone calls and to write letters to your friends.

6. Keep the alumni office updated on your progress. Quite often, people will call us to see what is going on.
