The Reunion registration fee is $25 for each classmate and $15 for spouse or guest. Additional charges will apply for Caps and Gowns, the Saturday evening off-campus dinner, and a printed Reunion Memory Book for those who wish to purchase one. If you prefer to mail a check, a hard-copy of the registration form and other materials will be mailed to all classmates in January 2022. Please contact us with questions about registration.
For cancellations, please contact Maddy Collins at (805) 565-6058. You may request to have your registration expenses refunded by March 1st, 2022.
50th Reunion Memory Book
We are preparing a Reunion Memory Book for your class as a keepsake of your 50th reunion. You can complete your Memory Book entries as part of the online registration form or at a later time. The registration portion of the form will capture the needed personal information, followed by spaces where you can share your story and memories of Westmont and also upload two photos. You can save your work and return to the Memory Book entries as many times as you need by accessing the unique link in the email response form you will receive when you save your work the first time. Please review the Memory Book entry formats shown here.
You may purchase a copy of the Memory Book on the registration form.
50th Reunion Schedule
The 50th Reunion weekend is full of activities designed to reconnect you with classmates and your college, including Friday lunch with President Gayle Beebe and the Board of Trustees, Saturday Commencement processional march with the class of 2022, Friday and Saturday evening class dinners, and Sunday morning chapel service.
Where to Stay
The Westmont Alumni and Parent Relations office offers a list of hotels/motels for our alumni. Ask the hotels for lower rates they may have such as Westmont, AARP and Auto Club discounts to get the best rates.

Memory Book Entry and Purchase for Non-Attending Classmates
If you are unable to attend the reunion, we encourage you to fill out the Memory Book entries so we can include you in the Reunion Memory Book. Click on the Memory Book link below to complete your personal information and Memory Book entries and to order a copy of the Memory Book.
If you are attending the reunion, the purchase of the Memory Book is done through the registration form linked above.
Class Gift to Westmont
You will receive a class gift letter in the spring, and we hope you will consider participating on the occasion of your 50th Reunion. Class percentage participation is more important than a monetary goal, so please consider a gift of any size! Any gift you make between June 1, 2021 and May 31, 2022 will count toward your class gift.
And gifts of any amount will be counted toward the class participation goal. Since this is your 50th reunion, why not make a gift as a multiple of $50 ($50, $500…)? If you’re married to a Westmont classmate, your gift counts as two gifts. And if you married someone in an earlier or later class, then each of you will get credit for your respective classes. When you make a gift online, credit will automatically be given to your class.
