Reunion volunteers are the heart of Homecoming and reunions at Emory. They bring valuable knowledge of their class and encourage others to participate in class activities and class giving. Reunion volunteers do more than plan an event; they inspire others to a life-long connection at Emory. If you're interested in being part of your reunion committee, email Michelle.Leblanc@emory.edu.
