Get in touch with lost friends, flatmates and colleagues from your student days. Find out how!
Class reunions are a wonderful way for you to reconnect with old friends. They are also a time for nostalgia, and for making new memories along the way. If you’re thinking of organising a class reunion, we can help you – and while the reunion itself is organised by you and your committee, we offer a free service to help you where we can. If you’d like to organise a reunion, we look forward to you contacting us to learn more. Phone 64 3 479 8487 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
