2019 LBJ School Alumni Weekend dates announced | LBJ School of Public Affairs | The University of Texas at Austin

The LBJ School and LBJ Alumni Board are proud to announce the second annual Alumni Weekend, continuing the tradition of hosting those classes celebrating their 5th, 10th, 15th, etc. reunion. The LBJ School Alumni Weekend reunion takes place one weekend early each fall semester, this year beginning on Friday, Sept. 20 and going to Sunday, Sept.  22. Mark your calendar!

The 2019 Alumni Weekend will include:



  • Individual Class Reunion Events*
  • 2:30 p.m.: LBJ Great Tailgate Society's Alumni Tailgate (LBJ School Breezeway) The OSU vs. Texas tailgate will cost $5 (pay at the event) and entry will include unlimited food. All guests (students and alumni alike) must bring their own beverages. For tailgate updates, visit The LBJ Great Tailgate Society Facebook page.
  • 6:00 p.m.: Unofficial LBJ Alumni Watch Party (Haymaker) We invite all members of the LBJ community to head to Haymaker after the Alumni Tailgate to cheer on the Longhorns. When you arrive, look for the "LBJ Alumni" section.
  • 6:30 p.m.: Oklahoma State vs. Texas Football Game (Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium) 


  • Individual Class Reunion Events*

*Coordinated by class leaders. See additional information below.

The success of these reunions depends on alumni volunteers from celebrating classes to serve as class leaders to plan and lead their own events. Individuals interested in serving as class leaders will be expected to 1) help with outreach to classmates; 2) facilitate attendance at the planned Friday and Saturday events; and 3) plan additional class-related events (if they so desire) throughout the weekend.

We have an Alumni Reunion Toolkit, which includes advice and examples of what classes have done in the past. While our timeline this year is a bit expedited relative to the toolkit, we have a head start with two events already scheduled, and assistance will be available from the Alumni Board Outreach Committee and the LBJ School alumni relations coordinator, Amanda Mendez. To indicate your interest in participating, please reach out to Amanda at lbjalum@austin.utexas.edu.
