Welcome back to celebrate the 30th anniversary of your graduation from StFX.

Update - Class of 1987 Dinner - 6:30pm Reception, 7:30pm Dinner - Dennis Hall, Coady Institute. Attire: Business Casual.

Dear classmates,

We write this letter as StFX just hosted the Class of 2017 for its Convocation Weekend—that means it’s been 30 years since we crossed the stage at ours. Wow—30 years! Geez Louise—where did time go? We can still remember our great years together at X—the best dancing music ever with the likes of Van Halen, Prince, Tina Turner, Michael Jackson and of course, everyone’s favourite Cyndi Lauper—“Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”.  And how about our movies during that time which went on to become sequel classics with likes of Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, Alien, Karate Kid, Beverly Hills Cop and our absolute favourite—Ghostbusters. Oprah debuted, so did argyle vest sweaters, fringed and buckled boots, leg warmers and top siders---great to see that Oprah outlasted them all. 


Come this fall, it is our 30th Homecoming Weekend--we need to celebrate this milestone—together with the 80s greatness at heart. While our hair may be thinner, not as big or a different color, belts a little tighter—who really cares—it’s called Homecoming for reason—let’s come back “home” and reconnect.  No excuses. Let’s get it done—make it happen. These milestones attract a fair number of classmates, but our class is very special. Let’s get everyone back and take over the campus. After all, our President is married one of us and if Mary Ellen says it’s on—we all have to do our part and show up. You won’t be disappointed either—StFX is even more beautiful today than when we left in ‘87, but that special Xaverian family spirit absolutely thrives. We’d love to show you around, tour the old haunts, explore the new ones and simply have a wonderful weekend together.

More details regarding Homecoming can be found on our class website:

If you need any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact either of us. We hope you and anyone special can join us.

Hail & Health
