    My Class's 50th Reunion Gift — The 50th class reunion marks a tremendous milestone in the lives of Kirkland alumnae. This occasion also provides a unique opportunity for classmates to expand their support of today’s students and faculty, including a class gift, and consideration of other areas such as student scholarships, the arts programs, and our annual giving program.

  • The Kirkland Class of 1974's 50th reunion gift — the complete renovation of a courtyard space outside of List, home to the Literature and Creative Writing departments. The courtyard will be used as a gathering space for students, alumni and visitors, and will enhance "Kirkland Everlasting" on the campus.
