EIU Housing and Dining Reunion has been postponed until June 2-5, 2022. Please save the date!
HOUSING AND DINING Reunion:
Former students and staff are always welcome to come back to campus for a visit. Every 5 years we host a reunion where several hundred former staff members come back to EIU. There are some activities that bring everyone together but the real fun is all the “mini reunions”. This is the perfect opportunity to get your group together.
Save the date and join University Housing & Dining Services and the EIU Alumni Association for the third Housing Reunion this June 2-6, 2022. We hope you will join us and encourage your friends to do the same we were reconnect to celebrate our shared EIU experiences.
The Alumni Services office will be preparing a special reunion book that information submitted by alums. Please complete this form and be added to the memory book. Even if you cannot attend, we will send you a book following the reunion.
If you want to confirm that we have your current info, please complete this online form. CLICK HERE
