Some traditions are worth breaking.

After 65 years of springtime reunions, the Washington State University Alumni Association has moved the events for Golden (50 years) and Diamond (60 years) graduates to the fall.

In September, students from the classes of 1954 and 1964 (and one student from 1944) returned to campus for three days filled with memories, conversation, and exploration. Between luncheons, dinners, and “classes without quizzes,” the alumni toured the new Football Operations Building and the Student Rec Center, attended a memorial service for veterans, stopped by Ferdinand’s Creamery, and visited with students.

The Alumni Association has rescheduled the reunions to build on campus events like building dedications and student dinners that alumni might enjoy attending. The attendees also explored the Lewis Alumni Centre and participated in seasonal campus activities,  including a tailgating event and a football game.

The reunions for the classes of 1955 and 1965 are scheduled for September 2015. Check back with the WSUAA for details.
