This past weekend over 550 alumni and friends of the university ventured back to Xavier's campus for Reunion Weekend 2012. Each class with a five-year anniversary was invited back to celebrate or "relive" their time at Xavier and see how campus has grown since their glory days.
There was a special focus on the class of 1962 because they were celebrating their 50-year anniversary. Alumni came in from 26 different states across the country and represented 47 different years spanning from 1942-2011.
John Brault is one of the members of the class of 1987 who
came back to campus for his 25th reunion. "It's always great being back on campus. The place looks amazing with all of the new buildings and green space. Best of all was seeing old friends, some of whom I haven't seen in
almost 20 years. We had a great time reminiscing about the old days. It was like we were back in school and never left," Brault said. Every year, Reunion Weekend is the largest on-campus alumni event. Joe Ventura, director for the National Alumni Association, was in charge of this year's occasion. Activities that made up the weekend event included: the men's basketball season opening game, class-specific events, art displays, academic presentations,
campus tours and various lunch and dinner receptions, as well as an all-reunion Mass. "This weekend provided an
excellent opportunity to not only showcase the Xavier campus with all the newly constructed buildings but also to re-engage alumni from ten Xavier classes and nine Edgecliff classes whose class years ended in two
and seven," Ventura said.
