Your Reunion


The Meliora spirit has never been stronger. While we can’t be together as expected this fall for Reunion festivities on campus, we can still celebrate our community, experiences, and stay connected with each other online until we can meet up again in person. Check out some fun activities, stories and favorite Rochester Traditions below.

Why we love dandelions

In 1851 Rochester adopted its motto Meliora—a Latin word for “ever better.” It’s more than a motto for us. It’s our past, present, and our vision for the future. Learn more about the incredible, deep history of the University from its archivist, Melissa Mead.
