Alumnae Weekend

Alumnae Weekend

In April of each year, Agnes Scott College welcomes alumnae back to campus for Alumnae Weekend to celebrate with a class reunion every five years. This is a special time to reunite with classmates and friends, explore the beautiful campus and once again experience the rich intellectual life of the college.  We hope these web pages will help you stay connected to the college, the Alumnae Association, and to each other. Use the class links at right to take a look at your class web site for more specific information on your class reunion plans, parties and attendance, plus totals and percents for your class reunion giving. This year’s Alumnae Weekend is scheduled for April 25-26, 2014.
