Class of 1975 Reunion

Welcome to our 45th Reunion!

While our lives have changed significantly since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, Albright had to make the difficult decision to pivot from the typical in-person, on-campus events to a re-imagined virtual experience for Homecoming Weekend, September 25-27, 2020.

Until we are able to reschedule our in-person reunion for a future date, we will still commemorate this year with virtual class gatherings.

Drop in to chat with fellow members of Domino Players, Albrightian, CCB, Turkey Band, Dance Marathon, SGA, Orientation Leaders, WXAC and more clubs galore!
