Share the Wharton “More Than Ever” message with your classmates! Reunion Weekend is a success because of volunteer outreach! In 2018, a record breaking year, there were over 3,000 attendees (alumni and guests). This was the strongest reunion attendance in Wharton’s history. We set reunion attendance records for the 15th, 20th, and 35th reunions. We expect 2019’s reunions will continue this trend.

Our Reunion Volunteers helped Wharton reach record attendance during the MBA Reunion Weekend 2018. 2296 alumni came back bringing 880 guests for a total attendance of 3194. There is an 82% increase from 2013 when these classes were in reunion last.

Our Reunion numbers also helped Wharton raise over 3.6 million from over 2,000 classmates last year through the Reunion Class Gifts which directly support the student and alumni experience.

In 2018, over 60 Pre-Reunion events were hosted across the globe with over 1580 alum and guest in attendance. This is a 50% increase from the previous year.
