» Class of 1966 50-Year Reunion

Dear Class of 1966,

Can you believe it has been 50 years since we graduated from Chapman? A lot has happened in our lives since then. There have been dreams fulfilled, successful careers, wonderful children and grandchildren, and a few life-changing experiences along the way. Chapman has grown, too, since we graduated. Our once small Chapman College of around 700 students has now expanded to a university of over 7,000 students. To properly celebrate this milestone, we invite you to join us for the 1966 Class Reunion, which will take place during The Chapman Family Homecoming Celebration on Saturday, October 1, 2016. 

Much has changed since we graduated from Chapman, but the “Chapman Spirit” has remained the same. During this 50-year anniversary celebration, you will make new memories as you reconnect with Chapman friends, remember classmates and celebrate your many achievements over the past 50 years. This is a great opportunity to visit campus and reconnect with the place you once called home. We look forward to seeing you at the reunion!

  • “If it hadn’t been for scholarships and job opportunities at Chapman when I enrolled, I would never have been able to have the Chapman experience.  Now that I’m able to do so, I like to give back so as to help other financially strapped students.”

    A meaningful gift can express your gratitude for the experience you received at Chapman. Help to create opportunities for deserving students by making a $50 gift in honor of your 50 Year Reunion, $19.66 in honor of your class year, or upgrade to $16.67 a month for five years to have your legacy engraved on the Alumni Legacy Wall inside of Doti Hall.

    We encourage you to make your gift in honor of a professor or past classmate that made an impact on you while here at Chapman. Remember every gift counts!

    Make your gift to the Alumni Scholarship Fund through the 50 Year Reunion Class Gift by clicking here. 

    Reunion giving efforts boost overall alumni giving participation and accounts for 25% of Chapman Fund dollars raised each year. As you may know, alumni giving (also known as alumni participation) has a direct impact on Chapman University's ranking in U.S. News & World Report. The more alumni who give, the greater the value of your degree. This ranking criteria is determined by the percentage of alumni who donate, not by the total dollar amount raised, so every gift counts.
