Kenyon welcomes back the classes of 1940 '41 '42 '50 '51 and '52 this April 17-19, 2013.
Kenyon has recently changed the format of its annual Post 50th Reunion to allow alumni to gather with friends and classmates from adjacent classes. These "cluster reunions" will invite alumni to return to Gambier more often, with Kenyon men who studied on campus during the same era.
A class becomes part of the cluster reunion cycle after hitting the fifty-fifth reunion milestone. Class members will be invited to attend a cluster reunion more frequently than with the traditional every-five-years format. Because classes will gather in groups of three, the groups will shift each time, creating different mixes of classes at reunion. The new model won the support of attendees at recent Post 50th Reunions, and Alumni Council approved the change.
Classes celebrating their fifth through fiftieth reunions will continue following the traditional five-year reunion cycle, returning for Reunion Weekend in late May. "We have far too many alumni to contemplate a cluster format for our more recent alumni classes," said Baker. "We would not be able to house or feed everyone!"
