Enthusiastic volunteers and generous donors energized their Yale College classmates throughout the 2017–2018 year, culminating in two successful reunion weekends for the 3s and 8s.
The Class of 1993, celebrating its 25th Reunion, achieved a remarkable 84 percent giving participation. Their success was bolstered by the dedication of class volunteers, including three classmates who came forward with reunion giving challenges.
In honor of its landmark 50th Reunion, the Class of 1968 raised more than $88 million—securing 4th place among Yale College 50th Reunion classes. In addition, they broke the record for highest attendance for a 50th Reunion.
The Class of 2008 came together to contribute more than $1.2 million, a strong performance for a 10th Reunion class, earning them a spot in the top ten.
Making Yale history, 298 members of the Class of 1948 came back for the first-ever 70th Reunion. Classmates, many of whom had served in World War II, toured campus, reminisced about their time in New Haven, and reflected on the impact Yale has had on their lives.
