Class of 2006 10th Reunion

Thank you for visiting our 2016 Reunion Page. Our 10th reunion was a time to reconnect with Penn and each other and to smash reunion records!

On May 13th, 772 alumni from the Class of 2006 made their way back to Penn to participate in the greatest reunion of all time. Thank you for coming out and turning up! Your efforts ensured that '06 shattered a 22 year attendance record on our first night on campus!!! (record 590 classmates previously held by the class of 1994).

We captured some of the weekend's magic on our class Facebook page and with our 10th reunion party photo booth. You can also visit Phanfare for more of our reunion photos and other Alumni Weekend event photos.



Important Registration Information:

There you will pick up your event pass, information about the weekend, and alumni favor (included with paid passes referenced above ONLY, 1 per adult registered). Your event pass is your entry into all your paid Alumni Weekend activities so make this your first stop on campus! * If you have registered for nursing or free events only please go directly to your events, you do not need to stop at the Registration Tent.

Class Gift

Reunion giving is a time-honored tradition at the University of Pennsylvania. Our 10th reunion is a time to come together as a class and commemorate our Penn experiences through philanthropy. This year we set the ambitious goal of raising a total of $1,100,000 Gifts from the Class of 2006 which will collectively support the following initiatives to benefit Penn and its students:

The Penn Fund
: $250,000 goal
The Penn Fund provides immediate unrestricted support for the highest priorities of the University. A total of our class gift will help to fund student aid, residential life, classroom technology and student activities.

Individual Endowed Scholarships: $850,000
Our class has the opportunity to provide further support for talented Penn students with financial need through individual scholarships. 

Join us today in making these goals a reality for our alma mater and the students who follow in our footsteps. Giving to our reunion class gift is easy, call 800.237.2655 or visit http://www.pennfund.upenn.edu/classgift. Thank you in advance for considering your gift this milestone year.

Harrison Society

Our class has a goal of 5 new members of the University’s Harrison Society, which recognizes alumni and friends who have named Penn as a beneficiary of a will, living trust, retirement plan or life insurance policy that benefits Penn in the future.  If you have already included Penn in your will, or would like information about making a bequest or beneficiary designation of your retirement plan or life insurance to support The Penn Fund or our class scholarship, please contact The Office of Gift Planning.
