Class of 1963

Alumni Reunion Weekend

The Class of 1963 returned to DePauw June 8-10, 2018 and celebrated their 55th reunion and the place they once called home. Highlights of the weekend included an all-alumni dinner and awards celebration on the East College lawn Friday evening, a special convocation in historic Meharry Hall on Saturday morning, their class dinner Saturday evening and much more!

55th Reunion Class Giving

Reunion giving is an essential component of DePauw’s operational support, providing a remarkable 25% (or more) of the annual total given to The Fund for DePauw. Reunions engage alumni and encourage giving as a means of investment in the future of DePauw.

The figures shown below are based on giving from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018.
