Save the date: June 4-6, 2021
Converse has made the difficult decision to hold Reunion 2021 virtually this year, for the health and safety of our Converse Community. Given the current situation of the pandemic, we can’t in good conscience move forward with an in-person gathering of alumni this year.
The virtual reunion will be held June 4-6, 2021. Although virtual events could never replace the joy and spontaneity of reconnecting with classmates in person during Reunion Weekend, we look forward to being able to host some of our favorite traditions and reuniting online.
This year’s virtual reunion agenda consists of both ‘live’ events and other events to be viewed at your leisure throughout the weekend.
