Converse’s Reunion 2021 was held virtually this year, for the health and safety of our Converse Community.
The virtual reunion was June 4-6, 2021. Although virtual events could never replace the joy and spontaneity of reconnecting with classmates in person during Reunion Weekend, we were able to host some of our favorite traditions and reuniting online. Check out our virtual reunion events below.
Congratulations to the Class of 1971
This year’s Class Act Award goes to the newest members of the Golden Club – the Class of 1971! The Class of 1971 won the Highest Participation award with 48 gifts made by 29 classmates, and also won the award for the highest amount raised of a whopping $128,575!
If you didn’t get a chance to make your gift, our fiscal year ends June 30, so you have plenty of time to make a difference for your alma mater and support all of the exciting things.
