The Alumni Association has several helpful documents and resources for planning a successful reunion. The first of which is our Planning a Reunion Page. Other helpful documents we can provide are budget spreadsheets, lists of tasks that need to be completed, sample invitations and other helpful information. Contact us and we will be happy to email these helpful tips and forms to you.

Do I have to be a member of the Association to view the upcoming reunions?
NO.  Anyone can view the Reunions section of this site.

Why do you ask for my Spouse or Live-In Partner’s information on the membership form?
This information is very helpful to reunion organizers.  People often move and it is difficult to find classmates.  This is especially true of our women classmates.  By having the information of your spouse or Live-In Partner, reunion organizers have a better chance of finding their classmates.

This information is NOT required, but we encourage our classmates to supply this information.

How can I get in contact with one of my old friends?
This is ONLY available to Alumni Members.  Send us an email, asking us to help you find your old friend. If we have contact information, we will contact them for you.  We will give them your contact information, and if they choose to respond, they will contact you.  We are currently working on a paid member only section of this website where you will be able to access classmate and Alumni information if you are a member of the Association.

Why don’t you put class news up on the website?
We will post some class news here, but not everything due to privacy concerns. This is ONLY available to PAID Alumni Members who subscribe to our Quarterly newsletter. 

How can I volunteer to help at events, such as the Alumni Picnic?
Sure! Please check out out Volunteer page for more information!

How are alumni selected for the Alumni Spotlight feature?
We currently have a list of notables from previous Steinmetz literature and information packets given out at previous Alumni functions. We also take suggestions from Alumni (see next question).
