Alumni Reunions

NOLS reunions are a great way to reconnect with NOLS and fellow alumni living in your area. Want to find a climbing or paddling partner? This is the place to do it. NOLS and WMI grads, friends, family, and anyone interested in the school are welcome to attend.

Most reunions include a presentation by some amazing NOLS grad/adventurer, snacks and a gear raffle. All reunions include camaraderie and a chance to network with like-minded, outdoor-inclined folks. So take a look at the listings below— maybe NOLS is coming to your community soon!
