Alumni Weekend

Alumni Weekend - Oakwood Friends SchoolCome back to campus to visit with old friends and faculty of the school -- and meet new friends! Alumni Weekend is held each May giving alumni spanning the decades the opportunity to travel from near and far to reminisce and reconnect on our beautiful campus. The weekend includes morning Meeting for Worship and Meeting for Business followed by a lovely luncheon under the tent, with time to mingle among friends and meander on campus before a festive dinner in the dining hall and the school musical.
