Class of 1968 holds golden reunion

In the morning, class members enjoyed brunch while listening to a Laker panel of entrepreneurial alumni, followed by a campus tour.

Current students joined the reunion group for lunch, and stories were exchanged about campus life in 1968 and 2018. A trip to the Seidman House to examine University Archives memorabilia was next, followed by the alumni tailgate and pep rally before the Laker football game.

Their weekend concluded with a brunch. Throughout the reunion, memories were shared, friendships were rekindled, and class members were able to see how much their alma mater has changed in the past 50 years.
