Class of 1959

Alumni Reunion Weekend 2024

Join us for an extraordinary celebration to reconnect with our beautiful campus, reminisce with old friends, make new ones, and celebrate DePauw University. 

We are thrilled to invite the Class of 1959 to celebrate their 65th reunion on June 7-9, 2024. We look forward to seeing you on campus this summer. More information coming soon!

SEPTEMBER 17-19, 2024

The Class of 1959 committee would like to welcome you to attend the upcoming reunion on a new, rescheduled date for your 65th reunion to be held September 17-19, 2024.

Amazingly, our 65th DePauw reunion is just around the corner. We hope that you will be able to return to Greencastle the fall of 2024 so we all can celebrate those wonderful years so long ago plus our good fortune to be able to do so.

Your reunion committee concluded that moving our reunion to the fall instead of being part of Alumni Weekend in June would allow us all to stay on campus at The Inn at DePauw, have bathrooms in our rooms, old friends nearby, students back on campus, cooler weather, plus not be a small part of the much larger Alumni Weekend.

The Class of 1959 “Special” 65th Reunion. It’s special because:

  • It’s in mid-September of 2024 – we’ll be the only reunion class on campus.

  • We’ll all stay together – a block of rooms will be reserved at The Inn at DePauw. Of course, if you wish to stay elsewhere, accommodations at local hotels, motels and B&Bs would also be available.

  • We’ll have our own private bus tour of the contemporary campus and the “new” Greencastle.

  • We’ll have our own tour of the “updated” Roy O West Library.

  • We’ll be personally addressed on “What’s going on at DePauw.”
