All alumni who graduated 50 or more years ago are invited to two special events that take place the weekend of Homecoming. On Friday evening, you can participate in the  Golden Alumni Diploma Ceremony that is part of the Bulldog Forever Banquet. For this ceremony,  you have the option of reliving graduation day by donning a graduation cap and gown and being presented with a commemorative 50-year diploma. The next day on Saturday before the Homecoming football game, you are invited to another special event — the Golden Alumni Class Reunion Luncheon.

One of the best times to visit campus is in the fall to celebrate one of the University’s oldest traditions—Homecoming. Plan to reunite with friends for a chance to share your favorite college memories, see what campus looks like these days, and look for familiar faces around town.

These events take place during the summer, a few weeks before students head to campus for the school year. Whether you’re a new student, current student, alumni or family member, you’re invited.
