Alumni Reunion 2024

Join us for Reunion 2024!

ALL alumni classes are invited back to the Reimagined Reunion

Saturday, June 22, 2024

Explore this webpage for details about the all new reunion. We will continue to update the webpage as details for the fun-filled day are finalized! 

What's different?

This style forgoes the formal sit-down dinner and embraces more of a celebration feel. Reconnect with classmates and meet fellow alums outside of the 7 or 8 classes you are used to connecting with every 5 years. We have invited back ALL alumni, including our newest alums, the Class of 2023!

Scroll down for hotel block information, registration information, agenda and included activities. 

Our goal is to make reunion a family-friendly day of reminiscing, reconnecting, and making new memories!


This will be up to your class to plan if you would like to do something on a smaller, more intimate level

(not SIU sponsored, but we’ll gladly help you brainstorm some ideas during your planning process)

Any activity | Any time | Any location


Some ideas you could consider for your class:

  • Have lunch or dinner at a Springfield restaurant
  • Enjoy a Springfield Lucky Horseshoes baseball game
  • Rent a boat and enjoy an afternoon on Lake Springfield
  • Take a walk through Lincoln Memorial Gardens
  • A local alum hosts a gathering at their home
