We celebrate reunion classes at each milestone anniversary; starting with the fifth year, continuing every five years through the fiftieth. During your reunion milestone anniversary, we challenge you to show your Cardinal pride in a special way as you compete for one of the four alumni cups!

In honor of this, alumni often increase their annual giving commitment to commemorate the important milestone. With this additional generosity, you and your classmates make a collective difference by advancing the University’s mission and furthering your class legacy.

How will your class rise to the challenge? 

  • Reunion Cup: Awarded to the class with the highest number of alumni who return for Cardinal Weekend.
  • Alumni Cup: Awarded to the class with the highest donor participation within the reunion year.
  • Leader Cup: Awarded to the class with the highest dollars raised within the reunion year. 
  • Loyalty Cup: Awarded to the class that has the most multi-year pledges established within the reunion year. 

The challenge runs from January 1 through December 31.  Cup winners will be announced early February.

Supporting any initiative during your reunion cycle will boost your class numbers in the competition.
