“As always, we are excited to welcome our alumni back to campus!” said Vicki Biggs, senior vice president, Seminary Advancement. “When it comes to the reunion program, we’ll be offering some informative sessions, but we’re also purposely leaving the agenda fairly open so classmates have the time to reconnect with one another and renew the bonds they developed as students on campus. That’s what the reunion all about — renewing your connection with one another and with your alma mater!”

Participants are also welcome to come early for Concordia Seminary’s 29th Annual Theological Symposium, which kicks off two days before the 2018 Alumni Reunion, Sept. 18-19.
