Below is a summary of events and activities for the Class of 1968 reunion. All scheduled events take place in Strosacker Hall (union) unless otherwise noted. Events are complimentary for members of the Class of 1968. It's BW's gift to you!  

In addition to the official reunion events below, groups such as fraternities, sororities, or other affinities and interests may coordinate events on their own.
