Alumni Weekend 2020/21
Important update regarding Alumni Weekend 2020 & 2021
From President, Rev. James J. Maher, C.M. (June 24, 2020)
Dear Niagara Alumni,
All is well on Monteagle Ridge, we are rolling out our Forward Niagara Plan for the opening of campus and the return students for in person classes and learning for the fall. While it may feel like a return to normal we know that for the foreseeable future there is a new normal in place as well as creating and sustaining a campus led by the best health and safety practices. In that vein, we have decided to postpone our annual fall alumni weekend scheduled for Oct. 9-11, 2020, we want to ensure that we are making the most responsible public health decisions for our students, families, alumni, and campus community.
We recognize that many alumni have been looking forward to these events and share in your disappointment. With that said, Alumni Weekend 2020 has been postponed until June 4-6, 2021 and will celebrate alumni whose graduation years end in 0 and 5 and will also include those class years ending in 1 and 6. Specific details will be forthcoming, however please know that the focus will be on maintaining the traditional milestone events that recognize and honor the Golden Eagle Classes of 1970 and 1971 and the Silver Eagle Classes of 1995 and 1996. As a result of this decision, we have had time to reflect on our current practices and alumni weekend as a whole. Moving forward, we will move alumni weekend from its traditional fall weekend to the first weekend of June.
Ultimately, we all want to be able to connect with our classmates, have fun, and celebrate in a responsible, safe manner. We look forward to welcoming so many of you back in June to celebrate this year's special milestones, and our reunion classes ending in 0, 5, 1, and 6 at Alumni Weekend in 2021.
With every good wish,
Check back soon for a more detailed event schedule! If you had a room reserved at our hotel headquarters, it will be automatically cancelled.
