To ensure that these friendships continue to thrive, Landon cultivates an active network of alumni through a number of groups, a strong social media network, Homecoming and Reunions celebrations, social events on both coasts, and a twice-yearly magazine.
Landon's Homecoming and Reunions weekend is an annual tradition that includes a football game, reunion dinners, lectures with faculty, and much more.
Landon has established active affinity groups that help our students connect after they have graduated from our school.
In the Washington, D.C., area, the Alumni Board hosts events, such as a behind-the-scenes tour at the Supreme Court of the United States and an annual night-before-Thanksgiving Roast, to give alumni spanning the decades the chance to socialize and bond.
Members of our New York Bears alumni group (encompassing the New York-New Jersey-Connecticut tristate area) meet up to attend hockey games, have dinner together (often at a restaurant owned by another alumnus), and gather for school-sponsored events including wine tastings, networking receptions and photography exhibits.
Our Bay Area Bears group brings together West Coast alumni (specifically those living in the San Francisco area) for similar events. Members of our Grizzly Bears group, comprised of alumni who graduated from Landon 50 or more years ago, maintain their longstanding friendships with periodic meetings and receptions on the Landon campus. Our Black Alumni group holds social events on campus and in the Washington, D.C., area so that black alumni and current black students can meet and interact. And our United States Bears group connects alumni who serve or have served in the military, including Landon founder Paul Banfield, who left the school to serve in World War II.
Our LinkedIn professional network boasts more than more than 1,250 members who share ideas and connect regularly. Our alumni also stay in touch and keep up with the accomplishments and goings-on off all their Bear brethren by following Landon’s social media accounts, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Google+ and Snapchat.
