 50/60 REUNION

Somewhere on campus, there are pieces of you that remain, woven into the Drake experiences before you, and entwined with those that came after. That tapestry is family. You’ll rediscover those remarkable moments—and probably some familiar faces—when you come home this spring. 

We’ve got a special celebration planned. This year we’re marking the Class of 1969’s 50th anniversary and the Class of 1959’s 60th. Such milestones are an occasion to gather with old friends and revel in the strong bonds of Bulldog spirit. We took care of the details and put together a memorable weekend. View the schedule.
