ARW 2021 Logo

DePauw University is built on traditions and Alumni Reunion Weekend is one of our favorites. Nothing compares to the annual celebration of friendships and lasting connections that defined our time at DePauw. With this information in mind, we have decided to shift to virtual programming for our event this June.

This year has certainly presented challenges for all of us, but the DePauw spirit remains resilient. We are grateful for the many ways the alumni community has come together to support our students and one another.

Alumni College featuring Prof. Sujung Kim | 2 p.m. (EDT)

Prof. KimIn her presentation, titled “What if I Can’t Die?: Death and the Afterlife in Buddhism” Sujung Kim will talk about how life and death are understood in Buddhism. Death, in a figurative way or not, is the biggest mystery of human beings. Unlike the Christian worldview, from the Buddhist perspective, life and death are two phases of a continuum. One can even say that Buddhists do not believe in death. In this presentation, Sujung Kim will challenge common misconceptions about Buddhism and invite the audience to think deeply and differently about what death and the afterlife can mean in our modern society.

Sujung Kim (Ph.D. Columbia University) is an associate professor of religious studies at DePauw University. While her research primarily centers on the premodern transcultural interactions between Japan and Korea, her interdisciplinary research interests also include Korean Buddhism and other East Asian religions. After the publication of her first book, Shinra Myojin and Buddhist Networks of the East Asian “Mediterranean” (University of Hawai‘i Press, 2019), she is currently working on her second book project, Korean Magical Medicine: Healing Talismans in Korean Buddhism in which she explores socio-cultural, religious, and medicinal roles talismans played in the life of ordinary people in pre-modern Korea. She has published numerous book chapters and articles both on Japanese and Korean Buddhism. She is the recipient of the first KABS (Korean Association of Buddhist Studies) Mujin Writing Award in 2020. Also, she has won a $70,000 research grant from the American Council of Learned Societies, funded by the Robert H.N. Ho Family Foundation Program in Buddhist Studies in 2021.

Her teaching interests reflect these topics as well.

For this presentation, she will discuss her most recent publication, "I wish I could hold your hand: Inconsistent interactions between pregnant women and prison officers."

Alumni Reunion Weekend 2021 | Milestone reunions

Please explore class-specific webpages below as we recognize the following classes on their reunion year celebration. Class webpages will continue to be updated as more information, communication, and details become available. We hope you will take the time to connect with your class and re-connect with DePauw!

ALUMNI REUNION WEEKEND Frequently Asked Questions

Is DePauw hosting an Alumni Reunion Weekend this year?

Yes, though the format will be fully virtual. We are planning a week-long set of engaging online events and programs in place of our typical in-person sessions.

Development and Alumni Engagement, along with our university and community partners, has been closely monitoring the changing COVID-19 situation in Indiana. While there is hopeful news around the COVID-19 vaccine delivery, we would still need to host an event that is fully aligned with health and safety practices and recommendations outlined for our campus community. Because we would not be able to host a reunion weekend in the ways our alumni expect, we made the decision to postpone our in-person reunion celebrations until summer 2022. This decision helps to ensure the safety of all our alumni, guests, and community and also centers our work and planning around a safe commencement for our graduating seniors at a critical time in their DePauw journey.

Simply put, the reunion weekend that we would need to host would not live up to the expectations of our alumni. We look forward to welcoming alumni back to campus when we are able to provide the ARW experience our Tiger alumni know and love, and that fully recognizes our individual and collective DePauw memories and contributions.

2021 virtual events will take place June 6 - 13, 2021 and a full schedule of events will be available here in the coming weeks and will be updated frequently.


Why is DePauw making the decision to postpone the in-person elements of ARW now?

Like everyone, we have been hopeful that the COVID-19 pandemic would have been a concern of the past. We are still finding hope in the news and information coming out regarding vaccine delivery. As we analyzed local and state data, it became clear that we would not be able to host an in-person event in the ways we and our alumni would expect. By making the decision now, we believe we have time to prepare engaging virtual content to celebrate our reunion classes and our alumni community as a whole.


How will Annual Reunion Weekend 2021 be different from reunions of the past?

Select virtual programs will be made available for our alumni to view at their convenience and additional programming will be streamed live. The DePauw Office of Alumni Engagement has also created a robust schedule of virtual programs for all alumni, including panel discussions, virtual alumni classes, and networking events. We hope you will join us for many of the virtual programs available for DePauw alumni.

More information will be shared with alumni in the coming weeks and will be posted on our reunion page.


How will DePauw celebrate three years of reunion classes in 2022?

Planning concerning what summer 2022 will look like is already underway, and we will release specific information about the dates and schedule for Alumni Reunion Weekend 2022 in late summer 2021.

We are looking forward to and hopeful about welcoming back all alumni during the summer of 2022, while also designing unique programming to honor and recognize alumni achievements, including celebrating all of our 25th and 50th reunion classes whose in-person celebration was postponed. We will begin this planning process shortly and have announcements available later this summer.

This postponement is only a temporary delay of the amazing celebrations to come!


Will there be class-specific programming during this summer’s virtual event?

Yes, however, some individual reunion classes have already decided that they will not participate in ARW 2021 as a class. Those classes will not provide any class-specific programming during the reunion. Please visit your class reunion page and this page for details about specific plans for your reunion class. We welcome all of you to participate in any of our alumni offerings.


Can individual reunion classes or groups of classes schedule their own events?

Classes that want to plan events off-campus can do so, and we would be happy to assist in any communication needs those classes may have. We encourage classes to adhere to local health and safety guidelines.

Additionally, we are happy to support you in the ways you and your class would like to be engaged in our virtual programming this June. If you are not involved with your class planning at this time, please visit your class reunion webpage to get in contact with your reunion steering committee.

Our plan is to also announce future reunion weekend opportunities for the summer of 2022 that alumni and classes can participate in soon. Our hope is that we can host our alumni on-campus in the future in the ways that our alumni are accustomed to during the summer months.


Is DePauw’s campus open to the public for alumni to visit?

At this time, guests inside University-owned non-residential buildings are restricted to those conducting approved on-campus business. Guests are permitted in outdoor spaces on campus. Guests in outdoor spaces on the University campus may be asked to leave campus if exhibiting behaviors that are not in line with University policies.


Is DePauw still counting my donations towards my class giving total?

Yes! Although we know this is a unique year, your reunion year is the perfect time to acknowledge what DePauw means to you - the liberal arts education you received, the opportunities it provided, and the friendships you made and that endure. We continue to use these funds to support current students at DePauw, which makes giving this year all the more important. To make a gift in honor of your reunion, please call the Office of Annual Giving at (765) 658-4085 or make a gift online at depauw.edu/give. Be sure to include your graduation year so we can include your gift in the class giving total.

February 2021

Dear DePauw Alumni,

Given the continuing challenges posed by Covid-19, I am saddened to share that DePauw will not hold Alumni Reunion Weekend on campus in June 2021.

This news likely does not come as a surprise, considering the ongoing health and safety concerns and restrictions surrounding group gatherings. Still, I recognize how disappointing this news is for those eager to reconnect in Greencastle. We have had many heartfelt conversations with reunion committee members and alumni celebrants, all of whom are eager to be together to celebrate lifelong friendships and wonderful DePauw milestones, but who also recognize and express concern that it’s not yet safe or feasible to do so in person. That time will come. We can see the light at the end of the tunnel. We just need to hang in there a bit longer. I, along with all my DePauw colleagues, will dearly miss the annual boost of joy, energy, and enthusiasm alumni bring to campus.

While we were hoping to bring two sets of Reunion cohorts (’0s, ’5s, ’1s, and ’6s) together on campus this June to celebrate, we instead plan to offer a full slate of programming online from Sunday, June 6 to Sunday, June 13, 2021.

Alumni Reunion Weekend is a special time to come together and reconnect with each other and campus. We want to acknowledge the tremendous work our reunion volunteers have done this past year to organize and communicate with their classmates, plan programming, and encourage participation in class giving. We are working through logistics and scheduling options to celebrate these reunions on campus in 2022, and we will communicate new plans as soon as they are available.

We have put together a FAQ resource (above) that we hope will address many of your questions and concerns; if not, please reach out to us. 

We cannot wait to be together with you again to celebrate you, this occasion, your hard work and planning, and your lifelong friendships forged at DePauw. We hope you and your loved ones are well.

Executive Director
Office of Alumni Engagement


Class & Reunion Programs, Giving

Class and Reunion Programs

DePauw's class and reunion programs provide an opportunity to broaden the spirit of loyalty and friendship by expanding alumni engagement in the life and mission of the University. Alumni Reunion Weekend is held each summer to welcome our alumni, their families, and friends back to campus or virtually re-connecting, recognizing alumni achievement, and celebrating DePauw.


What better time for you to be involved in giving back to DePauw? When you give to The Fund for DePauw in your reunion year, you’re making a larger impression with your gift. Imagine the impact your class can collectively make for current DePauw students.
