Earlham’s Homecoming and Reunion Weekend is our annual celebration to welcome alumni and friends back to the College. We also celebrate class reunions each year, but all Earlhamites are welcome back to campus for a weekend full of festivities.

Homecoming and Reunion Weekend will begin on Thursday, Oct. 12, and conclude on Sunday, Oct. 15.

Beginning with the 5th year reunion, we celebrate reunions every 5 years leading up to your 50th Reunion years beyond the 50th will be a part of the Emeriti cluster reunion. For a quick guide, here are the class breakdown for the next five years:

  • 2023: Classes ending in “3” and “8,” plus a special 55th reunion for the Class of 1968
  • 2024: Classes ending in “4” and 9”
  • 2025: Classes ending in “0” and 5”

We encourage the entire Earlham community to attend.
