Reunion Weekend Schedule of Events

Virtual Reunion:

 

While we are disappointed that we cannot see you all on-campus this year for Reunion, we still want to celebrate with you from afar! We have created a suite of events for our alumni to enjoy from the comfort of their homes. We know that nothing can replace that feeling of being on campus, but we hope these events will give you a taste of Oneonta and some unique ways to connect with fellow Red Dragons.

If you have an idea on a virtual event for alumni that you would like to share, please email alumni@oneonta.edu. In addition, please note that much of this content will be shared on our social media platforms (see below) but you can request certain events to be sent to you via email should you need.

Please note that this schedule may be subject to change and that we hope to add some more class specific events to the line up. Please take note, there are two events that require a registration in order to gain access but all events are free.
