  • What is a Quinq? 

    A Quinq (pronounced "kwink") is someone who graduated from Vanderbilt 50 or more years ago. The Class of 1973 is being celebrated this year as our newest Quinqs. The term Quinq is a shortened form of the Latin word "quinquaginta" (50) or "quinquagenary" (50th anniversary). The name Quinq originated from three alumni from the Classes of 1887, 1897 and 1892 who were trained in the classics. They chose this name to honor alumni who have celebrated the 50th anniversary of their graduation from Vanderbilt University. Quinq gifts support students, advance ground-breaking research and provide the margin of excellence that makes a Vanderbilt education second to none. Please make your life-changing gift today. 

    For details about 50th Reunion at Commencement see the Class of 1974 page.

  • What is a Mini Reunion?

    Mini Reunions are alumni social gatherings during Reunion Weekend that are planned for and by alumni. They are a wonderful way to reunite with friends who made your college experience memorable. Past Mini Reunions have been organized around athletics, majors, regions, student associations, or other shared experiences. 

    When should I have a Mini Reunion? Thursday afternoon before the welcome event. Friday late afternoon before the Class Party or Sunday morning, before the farewell brunch. For more information about planning a Mini Reunion email the Reunion Office at reunion@vanderbilt.edu.
