Young Alumni

Young alumni have a number of exciting opportunities to connect with each other and the life of the school. The goal is to create unique programming for young alumni who have graduated in the last 10 years - whether you live near or far, you’ll find many ways to stay in touch and be involved. Some young alumni events include the College Dinner Program, Turkey Bowl and the Thanksgiving Alumni Happy Hour, and rousing sporting events such as the Annual Alumni Soccer and Basketball Games. There also are many occasions for young alumni to engage with the wider Sidwell Friends community through regional alumni events and networking opportunities such as Net@Night.

Do you have a great idea for a young alumni event? Are you interested in getting involved? Want to find out more about volunteering or leadership opportunities? If so, contact Anna Lindel, young alumni coordinator, at or 202-537-8441.

Regional alumni clubs are thriving all across the country, and the alumni events in these cities (cooking classes, happy hours, networking events, private tours, etc.) are a great way for you to reunite with, meet, and connect professionally with other alumni in your area.

All invitations (both snail mail and e-mail) are targeted by region, so we need your full mailing address to include you in future events. Updating your information is easy:

  • Reunion Weekend

    Posted May 5

    This past May 2 and 3, alumni from across the country (and abroad!) gathered together on campus for Reunion Weekend. Class years ending in 4 and 9 returned to celebrate milestones and catch up with classmates and faculty. Attendees spanned the decades from 2009 through 1949. The Classes of 2004 and 2009 celebrated their fifth and 10th reunions – nearly 75 members of both classes spent the weekend reminiscing and reconnecting. Check out photos from Reunion Weekend!

    Save the date for Reunion 2015: Mark your calendars for May 1 and 2, 2015, when alumni from classes ending in 5 and 0 will return to campus to celebrate Reunion!
