Once a Cardinal, always a Cardinal! During your reunion year, you'll discover that the spirit of the University remains constant even though the campus continues to change.

From January 1 to December 31 of each calendar year, we celebrate reunion alumni, everyone who graduated a multiple of five years ago. With special communications, competitions, and events throughout the year, you are invited to rediscover your alma mater and reconnect with your classmates.

Reunion celebrations in 2021

Each fall, members of our Catholic University community — including alumni of all years — gather on campus to celebrate Cardinal Weekend.

During Cardinal Weekend 2021, we will host celebrations for reunion alumni in the Classes of 1971, 1976, 1981, 1986, 1991, 1996, 2001, 2006, 2011, and 2016. If we are able to meet in person, we will also honor last year's reunion alumni with class years ending in zero or five.

Reunion Giving

Light the way for a new generation of students! During your reunion year, you have a special opportunity to honor your Catholic University experience and affect your alma mater's growth. With a one-time gift, multi-year pledge, or planned gift, you can impact the entire University, enabling current and future students to make memories that they will cherish for a lifetime.

When you give to the University during your reunion year, you add your name to the honor roll and contribute to the Reunion Class Challenge
