Class of 2009
Welcome, Class of 2009, to your Reunion information page!
Here, you'll find everything you need to know about your your 15th class reunion, taking place during Alumni Weekend 2024, April 5 - 7.
Every five years, your class comes back home to the Homewood campus to meet with old friends, enjoy good food, revel in social, cultural and academic events, and make new memories. Come back to Baltimore April 5 - 7 and celebrate this milestone with us!
Interested in getting involved with your reunion committee? We would love to have you! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will connect you with the staff liaisons who are working with your class.
Your gift empowers our students, faculty, staff, and fellow alumni to become the best leaders, researchers, innovators, and change agents they can be. Your Class of 2009 has set a goal of 185 donors by April 5, 2024. Make your gift today!
In honor of your reunion milestone, consider a gift of $1,000 or more through The Hopkins Fund Leadership Giving Circles. Annual gifts, like those contributed to The Hopkins Fund, collectively provide a key part of JHU’s funding each year and allow students to pursue their dreams and make the most of their Homewood experience.
