Experience a Creighton Tradition

Creighton reunion weekend

AN UPDATE ON REUNION WEEKEND

Creighton's priority is the health and safety of all alumni, friends, students, faculty and staff. As such, the University will postpone this year's Reunion Weekend on campus.  

We will now combine our reunion celebrations for 2020 and 2021 into next year’s event, taking place June 3-6, 2021. 

If you registered for a paid event, you will receive a refund within 10 business days.  

We're very sorry that we won't get to see you on campus this spring. But for those celebrating a milestone reunion year in 2020, don't worry. You will still be able to do in-person parties and activities with your classmates for next year’s Reunion Weekend.  

Though we can’t get together this year, we invite our alumni to join us at creighton.edu/reunion-weekend at 5 p.m. Saturday, May 30, 2020, for a livestream of St. John’s Mass and marriage blessings led by Creighton President the Rev. Daniel S. Hendrickson, SJ, PhD.  

We know this is a difficult time for everyone, and we hope that our alumni are finding the support they need. We will miss seeing you in person this spring, but you will remain in our thoughts and prayers. We can’t wait to meet again for next year’s Reunion Weekend.  

Alumni can learn more about Creighton's response to the COVID-19 crisis at creighton.edu/about/covid-19. 

Thank you for being a part of Creighton. Be safe and be well.

Assistant Vice President for Alumni Relations and Donor Engagement

A few words from our 2019 Reunion Weekend guests ...

“This was just a really special weekend for us. Life passes a little too quickly if you’re not paying attention. We just had to carve out the time to get here, and Creighton did the rest. Creighton supports Reunion Weekend so much. Once you get into it, you see, they offer so much.” 

 — Heidi Woodward, BA’99 

 

“It’s just good to come back. It’s good for your soul. We went through so much together here. We were family. Life gets busy, but it’s important to come back and reconnect. Creighton … it’s just a piece of my life.” 

— Diane Barry Carlson, BSN’79 

 

“Revisiting for Reunion Weekend is really nice. I used to do so much when I was a student. I was really happy to see that I can reconnect with some of my peers here. It felt like a family when I was a student; now that I'm back, it still does.”  

— Martin Jose, BS’16 

 

“It’s just fun to come back. I have so many good memories of being a student here, so many good friends I’ve stayed in touch with.”  

— Christina Bruck Heller, BA’94 

 

“You get close-knit when you’re at Creighton. Everybody's trying to help everybody else get through. Then when it’s over, you go different directions all around the country and the world. Fifty years later, you get back together, it doesn’t take long to reunite.” 

— John Parrish, DDS’69
