Come Back | All-Class Reunion & Family Weekend | September 23–25, 2016

Bennington College

Recreate, reimagine, reconnect with the Bennington you remember and engage in the Bennington of today with the backdrop of the gorgeous Green Mountains.

In addition to three days of special programming for All-Class Reunion and Family Weekend, the schedule also features Life After Bennington (LAB) events, which are designed to bring together current students, alumni, and families to explore what it means to bring your work beyond Bennington.

As 2016 marks the 40th anniversary of the opening of the Visual and Performing Arts Center (VAPA), we are commemorating work in the Visual Arts, Dance, and Drama divisions with special programming.

View the full schedule of programming for All-Class Reunion, Family Weekend, and LAB Weekend at Bennington.
