Although we were all looking forward to safely celebrating your class Reunion together in person this October, the recent rise in COVID-19 infections in Tennessee and elsewhere have resulted in Vanderbilt making the difficult decision to postpone Reunion.

Thank you for your flexibility and patience, and we look forward to celebrating Reunion with you when it is safe—hopefully in the spring or summer of 2022. We will keep you updated on plans as they evolve. In the meantime, please share with us what you would like to see at Reunion. We would greatly appreciate your feedback and insight.

Our Homecoming tailgate and football game against Mississippi State are still scheduled for Oct. 23, and we encourage alumni and fans to cheer on our ’Dores. Both events are fully outdoors, and our health and safety protocols for outdoor gatherings will be in place. Once registration for the Homecoming tailgate is open, you’ll find it here on this website.
