Many class reunion committees make the big mistake of not sending out a post class reunion survey once the event is over. The problem is that without a survey, it is impossible to gauge how well the class reunion actually went. After all, wouldn’t you like to know what everyone thought about the planning, the activities, and the location?
Aside from getting honest feedback from your classmates, a post reunion survey provides a ton of information that will come in handy for when the next class reunion is being planned.
In this article, we provide a list of questions to ask on a post class reunion survey.
You can download the post class reunion survey questions or copy/paste the ones you need from below.

The questions above are designed to provide information on how classmates felt about the reunion. While we all try our best, you should expect to receive surveys from one or two dissatisfied people.
