Alumni Weekend

Please join us on campus for Alumni Homecoming Weekend 2019: Friday, Oct. 11–Saturday, Oct. 12


Starting in 2019, Alumni Weekend will take place in the fall to coincide with Homecoming. This move gives alums a chance to visit teachers, meet current students, cheer on the Sun Devils at a game and see campus at its most alive! The entire Kent Denver community is invited to be part of this new tradition.

In addition, we will celebrate milestone reunions for alums who graduated in a year ending in 4 or 9. You'll find information about individual class parties below, and additional details will be shared by email and snail mail in August.

Please contact Elyse Rudolph, Director of Alumni Relations, by email at erudolph@kentdenver.org or phone at 303-770-7660 ext. 228 with questions.
