Class of 1996 25th Reunion

Photos from 1996 Yearbook

Ah, 1996…a time when Spice Girls hit number 1 with “Wannabe” and E.R. beat Seinfeld in ratings to become the most viewed show on television. Dolly the cloned sheep was born in July and in March of 1996, a search tool called Google started indexing the web.

Take a trip to campus and walk along the beautiful bricks of Christy Mall while you share your stories with old friends as we honor your silver anniversary. Join us Thursday, October 21 – Saturday, October 23 to celebrate and reconnect with fellow Pioneers, show your support for current students and celebrate everything that makes Marietta great.

Thank you for visiting your Class of 1996 Reunion site. Whether there’s frost on the brick paths or warm water lapping at the boathouse, Marietta will always be your home. We hope you have decided to join us on campus this fall. We also hope you're going to mark this momentous year by joining us with a gift to Marietta College. We all have our Marietta story, and after 25 years apart, we can't wait to hear all of them. With your support of our class gift, we can continue to help future generations of students make their stories possible.

Whether you can attend this special weekend in person or not, supporting The Class of 1996 Gift helps support all aspects on campus — from Study Abroad and Theater to Student Life Activities and Service Projects. We are asking you to consider a gift of $1,996, $199.60, $19.96 or anything in between. We are trying to get our class to achieve more than 5 percent participation, which would be a new record. So please give today to help us exceed this goal.

We are so excited for this year’s Homecoming and hope to welcome you back to campus in October!
