Bring Back Cluster Reunions at Bates! (3 subsequent classes together)

This petition had 42 supporters

Did you know that Bates College used to have cluster reunions where they would invite three subsequent classes to attend reunion together at the same time? This meant that you could visit with not only your own class but the class ahead and behind.  They alternated it every few years so that in another reunion year you would then gather with your class and the two classes ahead, or your own with the two classes behind. It was excellent!

These days our reunions are class specific. While the college encourages anyone who wants to attend, most alumni tend to just go with their own class or not go at all.

Would you like to have a chance to see your old Bates friends from the years around yours? Do you believe that Bates being a small school needs to increase the numbers of reunion attendees? Would you be more likely to attend reunion if you thought you would see more friends there?
