50/60 Reunion

50- and 60-year milestones are something to celebrate, and to the classes of 1960 and 1970: 2020 is your year! Join the Drake community and your fellow classmates for the 50/60 Reunion on April 23-25, 2020. It’s a weekend of reconnecting with classmates, celebrating Drake, recalling college days, and making new memories. You'll rediscover Drake and strengthen your connections to the Drake community as you attend a host of events, including receptions, a tour Des Moines, the 50-Year Club and 60-Year Anniversary recognition luncheon, a “Back to Class” lecture, the All-Alumni Tent Party, the 50-Year Club Dinner, and more. To top it all off: the reunion takes place during Relays, so you know the Drake spirit will be all around.

Mark your calendars now and watch your mailbox for a full invitation later in 2019. More information will also be shared on the website and via email, too. And start digging out old photos to submit! The Alumni Relations team will put together a slideshow and memory book for the event.
