Class of 2008 Reunion Party

Hey BU Class of 2008! 

It’s only been 5 years since we walked across the stage in Benson Great Hall and shook President Brushaber’s hand, but a lot has happened in each of our lives since we switched our tassels and stepped out into the world beyond Bethel.

Let’s come back to common ground and share where the past five years have taken us! Our 5-year reunion is on Saturday, October 5 and will include an hors d’oeuvres reception, a Bethel program in Benson Great Hall, and our Class of 2008 Reunion Party.

Remember that fun construction project that took over campus our senior year? We saw and heard the Brushaber Commons (BC) in its beginning stages. Well, it’s finally done, it’s really cool, and now we have a chance to enjoy it! Our class reunion party will be in the Bethel Underground, the newest hot spot on campus.

There will be a lot of great opportunities to reconnect over Homecoming Weekend, so mark your calendars for October 4-6. We’re excited to see you all then!

  • Reunion Reception (Brushaber Commons) | 5:30-6:30 p.m.
  • Royal Celebration (Benson Great Hall) | 7-8 p.m.
