UVA Alumni Flock to Cville for 100th Reunions Weekend

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of people are returning to Charlottesville this weekend for some big reunions. The University of Virginia is celebrating its 100th Reunions Weekend with a mix of education events and social activities.  

More than 4,500 alumni from nine different classes are expected to come back into town.    

Organizers say the events allow people to reconnect with their classmates and the university.

"UVA is very special in that the students that come here all had an interest in student self-governance and that turns into alumni self-governance and I think that draws a lot of people back to the grounds," said Cecil Banks, director of reunion programs at UVA.  

Activities were moved inside Friday because of the rain, but organizers hope to host the rest of their events outside.
