Alumni Reunion 96

Alumni Reunion 96

Rediscover Stout

Mark your calendar now to attend Reunion '96, June 28-29 at UW-Stout. Learn from outstanding Stout faculty, renew those great friendships and start some new ones. This is an important opportunity to reacquaint and reinvolve yourself with the university and the friendships that began here.

All classes ending in 6 and 71, from the Class of 1956 to the Class of 1986, are invited to return to campus to celebrate their class reunions.

Reunion alumni will have the opportunity to become reacquainted with UW-Stout and to recall their student days through seminars and lectures on current topics of interest, and tours of the campus, including the newly renovated Fryklund Hall.

In 1993, class reunions were changed from homecoming weekend to the summer. This change made dormitory space available and enabled more people to attend the reunions.

Further details will be mailed with registration forms by mid-April. If it's not your reunion year, don't feel left out. Reunion '96 is open to anyone interested in returning to UW-Stout.

Be sure to call roommates and college friends today to make plans to meet on campus in June.

Plan to attend Reunion 1996. Come alone, or bring your family; but come and reconnect. Reunion is fun.

Reunion Class Giving

What is a Reunion Class Gift?
Reunion class gifts raised $29,000 of unrestricted funds to support the university. This year's goal, $54,000 in unrestricted funds to support the university will provide benefits to students and faculty.

Of the total amount raised, half will go to fund the Chancellor's Honor Scholarships, which are awarded in the amount of $1,000 to entering freshmen who are in the top 10 percent of their graduating class. The goal is to support 27 students with $1,000 scholarships.

The other half will support the unrestricted dollars that provide funds for UW-Stout not accommodated by the university's budget, such as faculty development and faculty grants. Who is included in the '96 Reunion Campaign? Alumni who received their undergraduate degree in 1956, '66, '71, '76, or '86. The reunion gift is usually larger than an annual gift, to celebrate the reunion year. All gifts credited to the class since July 1, 1995, including:

  • all unrestricted gifts to the university (our highest priority)
  • gifts designated for specific purposes such as scholarships or memorial funds
  • corporate matches generated by a personal gift to the university
