Alumni Weekend (Schedule below) is always the first weekend in October. This makes it very easy to figure out when Alumni Weekend will be during the year you are having a reunion.
Alumni weekend is open to everybody! It doesn’t matter what year you graduated, or if your class is hosting a reunion event. The capstone of the weekend is the get together at the Armory (at least 400 people are there). You are invited to return to Oneonta, or to come down from the hills, and mingle with alumni attending their 20th, 25th, 30th, 35th.. you get the picture, Chances are you will know at least 20 people a few teachers, an administrator, a senator and a hall of fame inductee .
The weekend is always in this format: Golf on Friday morning, a large gathering in the Armory on Friday evening, an induction ceremony on Saturday morning in the auditorium, an Alumni luncheon followed by a homecoming football game on Saturday afternoon. Our largest gathering was about 614 alumni and spouses and significant others in the Armory on October 1st, 2016.
