Class of 1959

Share Your Memories, Leave a Legacy

 

Share Your Memories

Our college days were filled with unforgettable times with friends, lessons learned that you will never forget, and experiences that helped shape who you are today. As you plan to revisit these moments at Reunion & Homecoming, we encourage you to share your memories. Send us a photo with a memory of your time at Rensselaer, and we will share some of them on social media and online as we approach Reunion & Homecoming. Please use this form to submit your photos.

Leave a Legacy

Reunion & Homecoming is a great time to make a gift to Rensselaer in honor of your class, or to honor your affinity group or team. Your generous gift helps the next generation of Rensselaer alumni—our current students. Leave a legacy by joining your classmates, teammates, and friends, and make your gift to Rensselaer at Reunion & Homecoming.

You can make a gift online using our Class of 1959 page. Just click the “give now” button, or use the giving level “quick links” on the right hand side of the page. Gifts made using our page will support student scholarships through the Rensselaer Annual Fund Scholars program. Your name will automatically show up on our class donor wall.

If you prefer to designate your gift to one of hundreds of other funds on campus, please visit the Rensselaer Giving website. We will add your name to our donor wall once your gift is processed.

Any and all gifts made from July 1, 2018 to October 31, 2019 will count toward your class gift total, AND toward your class giving participation percentage!  

A Little Competition Never Hurt Anyone: Help Your Class Win!

Each year, hundreds of our loyal and generous alumni make special gifts in honor of their Reunion. This is an important and exciting tradition, and class gift competitions are one of the highlights of the weekend. 

This year, the class with the highest participation percentage, and the class with the highest dollar amount raised, will be awarded a memorial paver stone marking the achievement. These pavers are displayed on the ECAV concourse. Updates on each class will be sent periodically. Help our class leave a legacy, and win the competition.

Thank you for supporting today’s students! See you in September!
