ReunionsEvery year, classes and groups sharing a common experience (teams, musical casts, etc.) get together, reacquaint, and reminisce about their days on the hill. MLC is happy to host these gatherings through the Alumni Relations Office.

Alumni Tours—Join alumni and other WELS members on trips to destinations that cause us to marvel at God’s majesty, rejoice in His guidance of history, and praise him for his abundant blessings. The tours typically last 6-16 days and include sightseeing, daily devotions, and fellowship.
