Brandeis Alumni, Family and Friends

Class of 1970

Class of 1970 gathered at their last reunion in 2015.

Celebrate Your 50th Reunion!

Save the date for the Brandeis Class of 1970 50th Reunion during our Alumni Weekend 2021, June 11-13, which will be held fully online. Alumni Weekend 2021 will bring you back to the place you once called home — from the comfort of your own home!

By making this decision early, your class reunion committee can continue planning meaningful ways to bring the class together virtually. No travel. No masks required. No reason not to participate! 

We’ll be in touch as programs are finalized, and you’ll hear from your class committee directly about virtual reunion events that will take place leading up to and throughout the weekend.

The Class of 1970 enjoyed a special conversation with Professor Stephen J. Whitfield, PhD’72. The focus of the discussion was your time at Brandeis as discussed in Steve’s just-published book, Learning on the Left: Political Profiles of Brandeis University (Chapters 9-14). View the recording of the event.

50th Reunion Class Gift

The Class of 1970 is seeking to raise $250,000 to endow a class scholarship for students of modest means. Consider making a meaningful gift in honor of your 50th Reunion to create the Class of 1970 Endowed Scholarship Fund. 50th Reunion Co-chair, Detlev Suderow generously matched the first $50,000 with a 1:1 challenge gift. As of February 1, the class has raised over $115,000 toward this fund.

Contact Aaron Louison, executive director, leadership annual giving, at or 781-736-4013 for more information about giving opportunities in conjunction with your milestone 50th Reunion.

Please consider leaving a legacy at Brandeis. If you have questions or would like information on planned giving, contact Maria Miller, J.D., Executive Director of the Office of Planned Giving at
