In 2014, class years ending in 4s and 9s will celebrate reunions. In addition to these groups, we will celebrate lettermen and letterwomen, the 80th anniversary of The Beacon newspaper, more than 40 years of WCLH radio station, Psychology, Political Science, Business, Communications and the tradition of athletics at Wilkes at Homecoming.
To jog your memory, we've created an online photo album for each class reunion. Share photos, images of memorabilia and other memories and we'll post them for everyone to enjoy. Simply send us an email or post them to the Wilkes University Alumni Association Facebook page. If you would like to help us plan your reunion by reaching out to classmates, let us know.
At Homecoming this fall, a famous Wilkes face will join us at a brand new event! Our special guest, Bo Ryan ’69
, men’s basketball head coach of the University of Wisconsin Badgers, will be coming back to campus to Share the Spirit
with us! Our new event will be held on the evening of Saturday, September 27, in the Marts Gym to celebrate school spirit and athletics at Wilkes. All are invited to attend this unique event!
It's never too early to book your hotel room for Homecoming! Especially since King's and Misericordia are holding their celebrations on the same weekend. Here is a list of hotels that have blocks of rooms reserved for Wilkes alumni at special rates. Just mention that you are attending Wilkes Homecoming and you will be given the discounted rate. (Wondering why the Ramada isn't listed? King's College recently purchased the facility.)
