School of Arts, Sciences & Engineering

Class of 1985

It seems like yesterday we were studying in Rush Rhees Library and celebrating at commencement. Consider this your destination and “go to” website for the schools of Arts, Sciences & Engineering and Nursing to learn the latest news from fellow Yellowjackets, view upcoming events, join the class on social media, and keep up with 35th Reunion plans for Meliora Weekend. In a recent message to the community, it was announced that Meliora Weekend will not be taking place this October, but that the University hopes to move Reunion Celebratioons to June 2021.

Your staff liaison: Lauren Leunig
