Once a Bear, Always a Bear


In 2023, the Office of Alumni Engagement will help several classes celebrate milestone reunions. The Class of 1973 will celebrate its 50th reunion, the Class of 1983 will celebrate its 40th reunion, the Class of 1998 will celebrate its 25th reunion and the Class of 2013 will celebrate its 10th reunion.

Returning to campus for your reunion helps you reconnect with your alma mater. Whether you’re on campus all the time, or it’s been a while, you’ll love this opportunity to celebrate being a Bear!

Commemorate your milestone reunion year by purchasing a brick to be added on the Walk of Honor. With a gift of $250 to The Fund for Lenoir-Rhyne, you can personalize a brick that will be your connection to campus forever. Gifts made to the Walk of Honor will be celebrated in the sum total of the reunion class gift.
