Although alumni reunions occurred before the 1920s, the 1923 Quad documents the first alumni reunion held on campus. During this gathering, Stanford alumni (many of whom had graduated twenty-five years prior), relished in festivities involving student arts groups. The Junior Opera, the Glee Club, the Stanford Band, and a student cabaret group presented a special performance for the alumni attendees, whereas Warren Dwight Allen directed a choral concert at the Memorial Church. The Alumni Association has since institutionalized these reunions, and organizes theater, music, dance, travel, and community service opportunities for alumni.
