Lawrence | Milwaukee-Downer Reunions

Approximately 1,000 people come back each summer to celebrate their Lawrence and Milwaukee-Downer experiences at Reunion. Originally held during Commencement week, Reunions in various forms have been occurring annually since 1876.

Reunion 2019 was the ultimate celebration of the people, places and programs that make us uniquely Lawrence.  Check out the online photo gallery and see for yourself!

Reunion is based on connections.  Whether it's traveling with an alumni group, attending a regional club event or submitting a class note, there are endless way to connect with the broader alumni community.  You can also help make a lasting impact on the Lawrence community by volunteering as an alumni ambassador.

This year’s Alumni Award recipients are an impressive reflection of the community’s deepest held values.  Learn more about them here.  Have a nomination for a future Alumni Award?  Tell us about that here.   

Carry on the University's tradition of philanthrophy and support current Lawrentians. Pay it forward by making a gift in honor of your Reunion. 

Save the date for our next Reunion: June 18-21, 2020!
