Reunions and Events

Annual Reunions

The Annual Alumni Reunions are open to all Conrad Grebel alumni. We do make a special invitation to those who lived, or studied at Grebel during the featured years, but all are welcome. You may have graduated 1, 2 or even 10 years after these dates, but if they are the significant ones for you, then we want you to return to Grebel and reconnect with your old friends. Each alumni event is planned by the members of the Alumni Executive who represent those years.

Alumni Gatherings

The Alumni committee plans a variety of events and reunions. In the recent alumni survey participants asked for more alumni gatherings in various locations. For questions, comments or suggestions, email Alison Enns:

We've held other Alumni gatherings all across Canada including: Leamington, Toronto, Kitchener-Waterloo, Ottawa, Vancouver, Winnipeg and at Grebel.
