Alumni Reunions

MEI Schools > Alumni > Alumni Reunions

MEI Grad reunions are organized and led by volunteers, and consistently prove to be rewarding times for reflecting, reconnecting, and building into ongoing relationships. Your class reunion is important to us, and we’d love to assist you with ideas, facilities, and promotion.

Attention classes of 1948, 1958, 1968, 1978, 1988, 1998, and 2008!
It’s time to plan your 70th, 60th, 50th, 40th, 30th, 20th, and 10th reunions!
