Class Reunions

Class reunions are one of the best ways to reconnect with Valley Forge Christian College alumni and regain the feeling of a Christ-centered community and engaged learning. Generally, class reunions for the 10th, 25th and 50th anniversary classes will be scheduled as part of Homecoming festivities. Other classes are always welcome to schedule a reunion, and will simply need to contact the alumni office before April 30th each year.

The Office of Alumni Services will make every effort to reach class officers from these respective classes and assist in forming a planning committee. The class officers and whoever they select for the committee will be responsible to communicate with the alumni office regarding their ideas and expectations for their class reunion. Details necessary to set the fee for attending the reunion need to be finalized before mid-May each year, in order to meet publication deadlines.
