Reunion 2020 June 11-14

Members of the class of 1985

December 16, 2019

Dear Springfield Classmates,

From June 11-14, 2020, the great Springfield College Class of 1985 will celebrate its 35th Reunion. Please save these dates, and plan to attend for a day, or the entire weekend. Come celebrate the 80’s, reconnect with friends, and all of the familiar strangers with whom you shared a very special time and place.

When I think of Springfield College, I remember wearing beanies, trying not to step on the senior sidewalk, saying hello to everyone I passed, singing Springfield songs, freshman triple rooms in International, skinny windows in Gulick, walking to Maroon in the snow, meeting friends in the snack bar, crowded halls by the mailboxes, students on the BC benches, parking a car outside the BC and getting a ticket, going to psych lectures in Woods Hall, going to the new round gym, and the round indoor track, seeing the old Hall of Fame on campus next to the natatorium, going to English classes in Schoo, athletic classes in Judd Gym, physical fitness requirements every semester, eating dinners at Cheney, cramming for exams at Babson, sitting in the sun by Lake Massasoit, and ordering late night Pizza King.  

What do you remember? Come share your Springfield College experience in June.   

Detailed event and lodging information will be available soon, but for now, just mark your calendar! Please fill out the response form to let us know of your intentions.

Please do not forget to make a Reunion year gift to Springfield.  Financial support is paramount to the long term success of private higher education.  Your gift, no matter the size, makes a difference.  We are aiming for participation more than amount.  To give, please visit www.springfield.edu/giving.

We hope to beat the class of ’75 in every category. They won all the awards at Reunion last time, so it is game on, Springfield alumni know how to compete! We are the Centennial class after all, so it’s time for us to make some noise.   

Isn’t it fun remembering our time at Springfield? We look forward to making this a great reunion with your help. Hope to hear from you, and see you in six months on Alden Street.

On behalf of our always energetic Reunion committee, best wishes in the coming year.
