As part of your 50th Reunion celebration, the William & Mary Alumni Association will publish an edition of the Re-Echo. The Re-Echo is a yearbook that tells the story of our class at William & Mary and during the 50 years since graduation.

We are partnering with BrightCrowd this year to create a beautiful online copy of the Re-Echo, as well as a printed version. The online version is secure so that only our classmates can view it, and it allows for additional information and photos to be included. We will create a printed version based on the online yearbook as a keepsake for 50th Reunion attendees during Traditions Weekend.

To make your page, enter the book directly through the invitation email you received on Feb. 25Please add your page to the online yearbook by March 17 to be included in the print edition. For more information on the Re-Echo, please visit the FAQs on the Weekend Info page.

Each classmate who purchases the 50th Reunion Full Weekend Package or another ticketed class event will receive a copy of the Re-Echo. All classmates attending the Induction Ceremony and Luncheon will receive an Olde Guarde Medallion. If you are unable to attend the weekend and would like to purchase a Re-Echo or Olde Guarde Medallion, please contact the Alumni Association at alumni.events@wm.edu.

Have photos from your time at W&M you'd like to share with your classmates in addition to your Re-Echo entry? Submit them here by March 25.

Please note that any photos submitted may be used in printed material and the Class of 1974 slideshow.
