Class of 1976 Reunion

The Class of 1976 reunion will take place on Saturday evening, October 1 from 6-9 p.m. in the Olson Boardroom, located on level 4 of Brushaber Commons. Join us as we gather to remember, to laugh, and to catch up. Heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served. 

Don’t miss this opportunity, as the next official Class of 1976 reunion won’t be for 10 more years! 


Pre-registration for the Class of 1976 reunion is now closed. Walk-up cost is $15/person. Tickets can be purchased at Reunion Check-in on Saturday, October 1 from 4-7 p.m. in the Community Life Center lobby.


As we gather to celebrate our Bethel stories, our class has the opportunity to support current and future Bethel students through a gift to the Royal Alumni Scholarship fund. Learn more and give today. (You’ll also have an opportunity to give when you register for our reunion).

Stay connected

Join our Facebook group. We’ve created a “Bethel (College) University Class of 1976" Facebook group to generate enthusiasm for our reunion. Whether or not you attend, we encourage you to join the group and connect with classmates. Feel free to share favorite stories, pictures, and memories from your years at Bethel.

Update your info. Make sure your information is current so you don't miss out on any Bethel events or opportunities.
