Alumnae/i Weekend

Congratulations to everyone celebrating milestone reunions! We will have special Class Reunion celebrations Saturday evening to honor all members of classes ending in  0's, 1's, 5's, and 6's!

Welcome to this spring’s virtual Alumnae/i Weekend celebration, April 23-25, 2021! Due to obstacles presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, we've decided a virtual event is the best way to protect the health and safety of all alumnae/i. For more information on Goucher’s response to COVID-19, please refer to the college’s dedicated website. We will make sure your class has a reunion to remember, and for 2021, you get to do it from the comfort of your couch.
