Jay Evenhouse ’84
Director of Alumni Relations
It is truly a special time when classmates can gather together again to catch up on the years gone by and reminisce about the times they walked the halls of Timothy Christian Schools. Here in the Timothy alumni office we treasure and encourage classes to celebrate these milestone reunions.
If your class is thinking about having a reunion, or if you’re interested in learning more about how to plan a reunion for your class, the alumni office is here to help you! Below are just a few common questions we typically receive, but we also encourage you to contact Jay Evenhouse, Director of Alumni Relations, to help you with your planning.
How does Timothy help with reunions?
There are a number of ways in which The Timothy Christian Alumni Relations office can help with the planning of your reunion.
1. Class Lists
We will provide the reunion chairperson with a list of your classmates and the contact information Timothy has on file. Please keep in mind that the information is only as updated as alumni allow it to be. Please encourage your classmates to contact us with their updated information.
2. Schedule Campus Tours and Demonstrations
Using the campus as an initial meeting place for classmates attending the reunion is often helpful and popular. We can set up a tour of the facilities and also arrange to have demonstrations of the new upgrades to our classrooms and facilities. Contact the Director of Alumni Relations for further information.
We are also here to answer any questions, provide helpful hints, and to generally be a sounding board for the reunion committee. Don’t hesitate to contact us with questions, we’ll be happy to answer them to the best of our ability. The Director of Alumni Relations is available to assist at the reunion if needed.
Frequently Asked Questions
Your reunion can be scheduled for anytime that works for the majority of the classmates. We find that most are scheduled during the later part of the summer and through the fall but your class may feel different.
Who plans a class reunion?
It is the responsibility of the class officers from your senior year to plan the class reunion but for many reasons that might not be possible. Often, other members of the class may volunteer to organize reunions.
When do you have a reunion?
Typically the first class reunion falls 10 years after your graduation. From there, classes choose to celebrate in 10 year increments but any reunion is welcome and encouraged. It’s really up to you and your classmates’ preferences.
Do I have a reunion coming up?
Check this page for upcoming reunions and dates. Also, make sure that you update your alumni contact information using the update contact form on our main landing page. Our class lists are only as updated as you allow them to be.
How far in advance should we start planning our reunion?
As far in advance as possible. We suggest at least 6 months to a year. This allows time for your class to form a reunion committee, save the date, find any “lost” alumni, reach out to classmates, book a location, arrange any entertainment/food/activities, and allow time for classmates to make travel arrangements.
How do I advertise my class’ reunion?
We would love to help you promote your class reunion and we have a variety of ways to do that through our Facebook page, newsletter and more.
