Alumni Weekend 2023 Reunion Volunteers

Alumni Weekend is April 28–30, 2023, and we cannot wait to celebrate with alumni in person and on campus for the first time since 2019! 

At Alumni Weekend, we’ll be celebrating two special groups of Pitzer alumni! 

Pitzer Trailblazers
Classes celebrating 50 years or more since graduation helped shape the College and blazed the trail for the Pitzer students of today. If you graduated in 1973 or earlier, you are a Pitzer Trailblazer! 

All Alumni in Classes Ending in 3s and 8s
1978 (45th Reunion), 1983 (40th Reunion), 1988 (35th Reunion), 1993 (30th Reunion), 1998 (25th Reunion), 2003 (20th Reunion), 2008 (15th Reunion), 2013 (10th Reunion), and 2018 (5th Reunion) 

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for your Reunion! There are many ways you can participate as a Class Volunteer:

  • Partner with Pitzer staff to plan class-specific and all-class programming. 
  • Recruit classmates to serve as committee members, event co-hosts, and panelists. 
  • Promote Reunion to fellow alumni through personal outreach. 
  • Encourage classmates to come back and give back during Reunion.
