1964 Golden Alumni Reunion

presented by Wells Fargo Advisors

Each year in May during the Spring Commencement, UofL graduates from 50 years ago are invited to a special weekend reunion and are inducted into the Golden Alumni Society. Save the date for your celebratory reunion weekend, May 8 - 10, 2014, which will feature dinner, a big band, and an opportunity to take a walk down memory lane. Class of 1964 graduates will be honored with a commemorative UofL medallion and have a chance to march in the class of 2014 Spring Commencement.

The UofL Alumni Association would like to thank Wells Fargo Advisors for their financial support in making this event a huge success. Through a very generous donation, the Alumni Association was able to offer additional events throughout the weekend with little cost to the inductees. Wells Fargo Advisors will be recognized at the Breakfast with the Provost and again at the Medallion Ceremony and Dinner at the Seelbach Hilton Hotel on Friday, May 9th.

*Note: Registration is now closed.

What is the Golden Alumni Society?

All University of Louisville alumni who graduated 50 or more years ago are automatically members of the society.

Each May, we induct our newest members into the society at the annual Golden Alumni Induction Ceremony. New members receive a golden medallion that honors their 50-year graduation anniversary.
