Alumni Reunion Weekend

Year after year, Alumni Reunion Weekend welcomes all alumni from near and far back "home" to Columbia. This eventful weekend features family-friendly opportunities to eat, dance, explore, reconnect, and much more.

Please save the date for the Alumni Reunion Weekend on March 6-7, 2020! 

50th Anniversary of Nurse Anesthesia 

For the first time, the Alumni Office is starting the tradition of highlighting one of our five graduate programs individually during the Alumni Reunion Weekend. The Nurse Anesthesia program will reach its 50th year in existence in 2020, so it only makes sense to invite NA alumni back to Columbia to help celebrate this momentous milestone! Join us for a casual reception at 701 Whaley on Friday night during Alumni Reunion Weekend to reconnect with old classmates and colleagues, as well as meet those who graduated from the program when it was a part of Richland Memorial Hospital.

We welcome back the classes of: 

  • 1985 (35 years)
  • 1990 (30 years)
  • 1995 (25 years)
  • 2000 (20 years)

Class Reunion Challenge

It's back better than ever! The MD Class Reunion Challenge will launch after the New Year, and give those celebrating a milestone reunion a chance to bring home one (or all four) coveted awards and have the ultimate bragging rights for the next year. 

  • Top Docs Award – awarded to the class that contributes more than any other reunion class during the fiscal year of their reunion. It all counts – gifts, pledges, and bequests made to the UofSC School of Medicine Columbia.

  • Golden Piggy Bank Award – awarded to the class that has the highest percentage of giving during the fiscal year of their reunion. Same as above – everything counts!

  • Golden Gift Award – awarded to the class that has the greatest number of gifts during the fiscal year of their reunion. Whether it’s $1, $50 or $500, we are looking for as many gifts as possible, regardless of the amount.

  • Golden Stethoscope Award – awarded to the class that has the highest percentage of attendance at the Alumni Reunion Weekend.
Are you celebrating a class reunion and want to see your class win? 
CLICK HERE TO GIVE! The deadline for gifts to be counted is Friday, March 6, 2020.
