A class reunion is a special time for you and your Cambrian College classmates. The staff at the Alumni & Development Office are looking forward to helping you plan a reunion that you will remember for years to come.
We have prepared this Planning Guide to help you organize your class reunion. This planning guide is only that, a guide. We would appreciate your input and are happy to discuss helping in other ways, so please don’t hesitate to let us know how we can make this guide more useful.
The main role of the reunion coordinator is to serve as the contact person for the reunion class. You will also be asked to prepare a letter inviting your classmates back to the reunion. There are letter templates available from the Alumni & Development Office to use as guidelines. The office staff will assist you with booking all venues and any food required for the reunion. Please note that Cambrian College can assist with booking space on-campus at a discounted alumni rate.
The Alumni & Development Office is happy to reach out to any classmates in which up- to-date contact information has been provided. You and your classmates may be in touch with some of alumni with whom the office has lost contact, and you may be able to help us update our database.
The Office of Alumni & Development will help you contact your classmates as you plan your reunion. We will edit, word process, copy and mail the letters to the reunion class members. It is helpful if you include the following information in your letters:
- date of reunion
- accommodation/hotel name with confirmation number (if applicable)
- class reunion events/suggestions
- date of reunion
- expiry date of hotel block booking
- location of all events
With these letters we will include an insert with the official reunion registration form and the complete list of activities.
Class Web Sites
If your class has designed a website to publicize your reunion we can provide a link to your site form our web site. Submit your URL to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be happy to mention it on our page and provide a link to it.
The Cambrian College Alumni Association Facebook page can provide you with a forum to create a group to communicate with classmates if you so choose.
The Alumni & Development Office block books hotel rooms at a number of Sudbury hotels. Each class is responsible for booking their own accommodation and payment. Most hotels hold the block booking until approximately one month before your reunion date. After this date, the rooms will be made available to the general public.
There are several reunion activities that can be arranged by the Alumni & Development Office including:
- welcome from the President and/or Senior Team members
- outreach to program faculty past/present
- college tours
- coordinated sports and games
If you require information on anything not listed here such as venues in the City of Greater Sudbury or tourist attractions, please contact the Alumni & Development Office and we will put you in touch with the appropriate people.
