2017 Golden Reunion

50/60 Reunion

There’s a part of you that never left. Somewhere on campus, probably in several special places, 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 1968’s 50th anniversary and the Class of 1958’s 60th. Such milestones are 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—a real class act. A detailed schedule is available, but you can also join the conversation on Facebook! 

See who is headed back to campus for the reunion! Please send us your RSVP by Friday, April 6. 

Memory Book  Let your classmates know what you've been up to! Complete the Memory Book Survey even if you are not able to attend the reunion. All provided updates will be shared in a special memory book that will be distributed during the 50/60 reunion.
