Brandeis Alumni, Family and Friends

Class of 1985

The Class of 1985 gathers for their recent reunion in the Shapiro Campus Center.

Celebrate Your 35th Reunion!

Save the date for the Brandeis Class of 1985 35th 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.

Questions? Contact Amanda Genovese '15, assistant director of alumni relations, at or 781-736-4029.
