Hey there, Porter College/College Five alumni from the early 80's!

Get ready to party like it's... well, 40 years ago! We’re thrilled to invite you to a 40th(ish) reunion for the classes of 1980–1986. This is an amazing milestone and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate with you!

Join us on campus for a special reception on Saturday, September 9th, 2023 from 2–4 pm. We’ll be meeting by the famous Koi Pond to reunite and catch up over light refreshments.


We encourage you to join the Facebook group to catch up with your fellow banana slugs and make plans for our reunion. You can also see who's attending and browse photos from your college days!

We’d love it if you joined us to…

  • Reconnect with fellow Slugs who were at Porter College/College Five from 1980-86
  • Mingle with special faculty and staff guests
  • Hop aboard a campus bus tour or follow a walking tour map
  • Check out photos and graphics from life in A and B dorms
  • Capture a special “40th(ish)” reunion photo at 3 pm!

And if you can stick around for the weekend we’re planning a few “no host” events off-campus like…

  • Saturday Dinner and drinks at Abbott Square (by the old Cooper House site)
  • A special Zoom session Sunday morning call with Porter College/College Five slugs around the world
  • A Sunday beach hangout down at Seacliff State Beach
  • A possible visit to Denny and April Green Holland

Congratulations on your 40th(ish) anniversary of your time at Porter College/College Five! Come home to campus this September to celebrate and reminisce. We can’t wait to see you!
