Class of 1996 Reunion

The Class of 1996 reunion will take place on Saturday evening, October 1 from 6-9 p.m. in the Eastlund Room, located on level 2 of the Community Life Center (CLC). 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 1996 reunion won’t be for 10 more years!


Pre-registration for the Class of 1996 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.)
