Rider Reunions 2013 are tomorrow!  This year we're starting fresh by combining all reunions into a single day which offers you an even greater opportunity to see friends and reconnect!  This year, Rider Reunions will kick off with the 5K — start your day with a healthy walk and even kick up the pace and enter to win!!  The Olde Guarde Society will join the fun on Saturday morning with a special surprise guest and an induction marking the 50th Reunion of the Class of '63.  Join us for a Garden Party on the Plaza celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the School of Education where you'll reminisce with members of the faculty and administration, past and present.  We'll toast our accomplished Alumni Award recipients and our inductees in the Science Stairway of Fame in a new event — The Rider Alumni Awards, and we'll induct our fellow Broncs into the Athletics Hall of Fame.  Mark your calendars for a memory-making day and wear your Rider colors!
