The health of our alums and our community members is very important to us. Benilde-St. Margaret's will continue to work closely with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) to monitor case data in and around our community to evaluate scheduling options and health guidelines for gatherings. If you have specific questions about alumni events, please email Rachel Kuzma Olson at

Please send in your photos for the alumni Facebook page and future issues of the Crown & Shield magazine. Check out the alumni Facebook page for more event information and updates at



*Please note: the reunion planning documents reflect suggestions for pre-pandemic gatherings in-person. Class organizers will want to abide by state restrictions and MDH guidelines if planning a gathering in 2021.

If you graduated in a year ending in a 6 or a 1, it is your reunion year. Some classes are moving ahead with plans while others have decided to postpone the reunion for a future date. The alumni office has a Zoom account specifically for reunion classes. Contact Rachel Kuzma Olson ‘93 if you are interested in coordinating for your class. In-person reunion gatherings can be organized by a class representative at their own discretion. If you would like to plan something for your class, email  or call 952-767-0647 for more information.

BSM 1976 - Canceled

We’ve made the tough decision to cancel the 45th reunion planned for Saturday, Oct. 9 due to low RSVP count (less than 30 people confirmed) and other factors. This was a committee discussion, with class president Bill Levoir, and with input from BSM and other sources. We believe this is the right thing to do at this time. We look forward to our 50th reunion in 2026!
