We encourage you to return to campus every five years for your Catholic University Reunion! During Cardinal Weekend, we host special reunion events for classes that graduated 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, or 50 years ago.

Each year, we work closely with reunion class committees to plan and organize reunion parties. When Cardinal Weekend registration opens during the summer, you can learn more and register for the upcoming parties.

Reunion class committees

Make your reunion event a huge success! Volunteer for your reunion class committee to help plan the event, promote to your classmates, and encourage reunion giving.

Class groups on Facebook

On Facebook, we host groups for most Catholic University classes. Join your class group to reunite virtually with your old classmates.

Reunion giving

During your reunion year, we challenge you to commemorate the important milestone by increasing your annual giving to the University. You and your classmates can make a collective difference by advancing the University's mission and furthering your class legacy.

Between January 1 and December 31 of your reunion year, you compete with other reunion classes for accolades:

  • 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.
