At Penn Medicine, we depend on alumni volunteers to help plan and execute successful class reunions. Whether it's your 5th or your 50th, your help behind the scenes is what makes the class reunion a memorable and meaningful event.
By volunteering for your reunion committee, you accept an important responsibility — to use your talents, knowledge and special skills to represent Penn Medicine to your classmates.
“I enjoyed serving on my reunion committee because it was a great opportunity to reconnect with classmates and was a valuable way for me to support the University, which has given so much to me.”
Gary Phillips, M’92
