Reunion 2021 June 10-13

Members of the class of 1980

We hope this message finds you well during this unusual time of social distancing, work from home, shelter in place, and quarantine. Even as you are adjusting to this new normal, we suspect, too, that you are doing all that you can to stay connected with your communities. Such is the Springfield College way.

As the College continues to adjust plans based on prevailing direction of this pandemic, the President's Leadership Team (PLT) has made the difficult but prudent decision to postpone Reunion 2020. This, of course, comes at a time when the President has also communicated that Commencement will be postponed. Classes celebrating Reunion in 2020 are invited to join those classes celebrating Reunion in 2021 for what will be a tremendous celebration that is scheduled for June 10-13, 2021.

The Alumni Council and your respective Reunion Committees have been apprised of this decision. Your Reunion Committees and the Alumni Relations staff will continue to communicate with you and share information regarding the GRAND Reunion in 2021 as plans unfold. We look forward to welcoming you HOME between June 10 and 13, 2021 if not before. In the meantime please stay well and stay safe .

Greeting to the Class of 1980,

Happy New Year!

It's amazing how fast time flies!  Believe it or not, we are looking forward to our 40th college reunion!  The Reunion Committee has been hard at work, and we hope to see all of you for part or all of the Reunion weekend on June 11-13, 2020.

Some important reminders:

  1. Come and reconnect with old classmates!
  2. Hotel reservations will be available at the Hilton Garden Inn, 800 Hall of Fame Avenue, Springfield, MA 01105, (413) 886-8000 (Rate $155.00/per night. Deadline: 5/13/2020). Remember to mention “Springfield College Reunion 2020” when making your reservations.
  3. Please consider our Alma Mater when you are considering your philanthropic giving.  Every gift means so much and enables Springfield College to carry on its longstanding tradition of preparing students to go out into the world and help others.

So, whether you enjoy reminiscing about Freshmen Camp, Man and Society, or Thursday nights down at Vin's Gym, come and enjoy some fun-filled time with your former classmates!

Below you can download a pre-response form. It is not a formal registration, it is to give us an advanced idea of how many classmates will return for Reunion.
