Homecoming and Reunion Weekend 2021

Homecoming and Reunion Weekend is a chance for all Earlhamites to come together, renew friendships and celebrate the accomplishments of their classmates. We’re honored to host these events and look forward to seeing you each year!

Mark your calendar—Earlham’s 2021 Homecoming and Reunion Weekend is October 1-2!

Join us virtually over the course of the weekend for alumni awards, class reunions, an alumni-student event and much, much more.

We know Zoom fatigue is real…

which is why we’re working hard to make sure our first-ever virtual Homecoming is as engaging as ever. We’ll be using Hopin, an interactive virtual event platform, so you can connect with classmates, faculty, students and other alumni without leaving the comfort of home.

MAKE YOUR REUNION GIFT TODAY!

Reunion classes are raising money for student scholarships. Join your classmates in giving to the Earlham Fund and spark good for future generations.
