Class of 1990
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 .

Dear Class of 1990,
We can’t believe we are writing to you about our 30th (yes, 30th!) Springfield College Class Reunion. Is that even possible?
While it feels like just yesterday that our parents turned on to Alden Street to drop us off for what would likely become one of the greatest adventures of our lives, it is actually time to plan for the Big 3-0.
Reunion will be held from June 11th through the 14th. We had a great time celebrating our 25th and are hoping to have even more of you join us on campus in June. Spend a few hours or a few days – we will be happy to see you no matter how long you can stay! Let’s catch up on what’s been happening and also share some fond memories of NSO, Pre-Camp, the opening of the Townhouses and time spent at the Keg Room and the Well.
Students are finishing up their finals as we write this which means that the end of the year is quickly approaching. Please consider supporting SC with a charitable donation. Our goal is to increase giving as we prepare for reunion. The focus is not on the amount of each individual gift, but on the number of 1990 class members who show their support. The young people Springfield College continues to educate do indeed go out and make our world a better place. Let’s show them our support! (SC now has a variety of avenues to direct your gift in addition to the SC Fund, so you can positively impact an area for which you have a passion. For more information and to make a gift, visit www.springfield.edu/giving.)
Please fill out the pre-response form so we can begin to formalize plans for our class. It is not a formal registration, but a way to provide us an idea of numbers. The Hilton Garden Inn, located in downtown Springfield, has been chosen as the recommended hotel for the Class of 1990. A special group rate of $155/night is available for rooms booked by May 13. To make your reservation, call 413-886-8000 and be sure to mention the Springfield College Reunion. On campus housing will also be available. More information will follow.
So, mark your calendars, dust off your beanie and plan to join us in 2020!
Your Class of 1990 Reunion Committee,
