Each year we welcome our alumni back to campus for Reunion Weekend, the can’t-miss alumni event of the season. This is your chance to reunite and connect with former classmates, faculty and staff, and raise a glass to those who are celebrating their special Dominican milestones.

Remember the feeling you had the moment you first stepped foot on the Dominican campus? Coming back to visit will give you the same excited butterflies.

Reunion is a special time for me to reconnect with my former classmates and connect with alumni I haven’t met, growing my Dominican family. The activities and people who attend never fail to make it an exciting and memorable weekend." — Brian Moore '05
