Reunion 2018

Many Paths One WoodsWoods Reunions are squeals of recognition, hugs from old friends mixed with delight of making new ones and the magic of your memories that are The Woods. Reunions are hearing hundreds of voices joined once more in the Ring Song and singing, “Hail to thee, dear Alma Mater…”

Come! Join us May 18-20, 2018 for a very special weekend. Return and reconnect during Reunion 2018 at The Woods. All alums are welcome to attend, and those celebrating milestone years (class years ending with 3 or 8) are especially encouraged.

For more information, contact the Office of Alumni Affairs at (812) 535-5234 or via email at
