Reunion Weekend 2023

We are excited to welcome all Bishops home for Reunion Weekend, June 2 - 4, 2023!

Join classmates, friends and former teachers for a few stress-free days back at the Old 160! From BBQ and beer on Box Plaza to wine tasting in the new amphitheater to the Annual Meeting of Alumni in Langhorne Chapel with Head of School Garth Ainslie, we’ve planned something for everyone! 

On Saturday night, we’ll celebrate with cocktails, dinner and dancing on the new Ron Hood ’74 Alumni Lawn.

Weekend highlights include:

  • Shop for VES gear with Casy Williams & taste Virginia wines with Debbie Burton.

  • Take a campus tour. You won’t believe the transformation!

  • Enjoy craft beer and potato guns with Charles Watson.

  • Learn how to draw editorial cartoons with Bob Gorrell ’73.

  • Stay on dorm for the true old-school experience.

  • Reminisce poolside with a late-night cheesy western.

  • And so much more

Check out the full agenda below.

We can’t wait to see you in June!
