The College of Pharmacy is pleased to host class reunions in conjunction with the Twin Cities Campus Gopher Homecoming. The office of Alumni Affairs plans the framework of the activities and invites alumni members to help plan any additional events or activities that the reunion class would like to offer to fellow alums.

Upcoming Reunions

You’re invited! Back to School Join your fellow College of Pharmacy 50 & 25 year alumni for a weekend of connection and fun activities. Join us in the Twin Cities Homecoming weekend 2024 (date TBA). Reunions will be held in conjunction with Gopher Homecoming activities. Alumni from 1974, 1999 and the inaugural PharmD classes from 1973-1975 are all invited back to campus to join the fun!

We are currently looking for additional volunteers to help in planning the class specific activities.

Please contact Jessica Ward-Denison or Bruce Benson with questions or to volunteer to help plan a great event.

A typical reunion weekend includes:


  • Breakfast or lunch with Dean Welage 
  • A tour of College of Pharmacy by student ambassadors
  • If the group wants a lecture from a current faculty member, that may be arranged.
  • Social hour near campus before the homecoming parade

Other activities can be organized by the reunion attendees. College staff can provide some support with ideas, contacts, etc.

Other classes have hosted: receptions, dinners, Twins/Saints baseball game outings, tours of Northrop Auditorium, the Weisman Art Museum, etc. 

A College of Pharmacy-hosted, pre-game football reception at McNamara Alumni Center, followed by an option to attend the game. Reunion groups can contract their own group block through Athletics or have the option to order discount tickets in our college-dedicated block (which all alumni access) regardless of whether they are attending any portion of the weekend or just the game.
