A Virtual Alumni Weekend and Reunions

This year we were thrilled to host our first-ever virtual reunion for Alumni Weekend 2020. Our alumni worldwide were able to join us from both coasts of the United States and as far away as Jerusalem and Sweden! 

The lineup of events included Networking with Alumni, Open Mic, RooPRIDE, Lifelong Learning sessions, and our Alumni Meeting for Worship over Zoom. Thank you to all of our alumni who lent their talents and voices to this year’s Alumni Weekend. Click on the event title below to view recordings of some of the sessions:

Another highlight of Alumni Weekend were the class reunions that took place among classes. With the help of volunteer Reunion Class Clerks, classmates joined together virtually for catching up and reminiscing about being lifelong Roos. A special thank you to all the reunion class clerks for their help and planning this year:
