Brandeis Alumni, Family and Friends

Class of 1996

The Class of 1996 gathers for their recent 20th Reunion!

Celebrate Your 25th Reunion!

Save the date for the Brandeis Class of 1996 25th 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!

At the same time, we recognize the special milestone reunion you are celebrating, and will plan to bring your class together in-person at a future date. You’ll hear from your class committee directly as plans for the in-person celebration are confirmed and as additional virtual reunion events are finalized.

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

25th Reunion Yearbook

Submit an entry to the Class of 1996 25th Reunion Yearbook by Sunday, March 21!

A free digital yearbook will be distributed to your class prior to Alumni Weekend.
