Class of 1973 to celebrate Golden Reunion in May

The Class of 1973 is being welcomed back to campus this spring for their Golden Reunion. Each year, the Alumni Association honors alumni who graduated 50 or more years ago at this special celebration. Graduates are welcomed back to UL Lafayette for festivities and events to honor them and rekindle memories from their days on campus. 
This year, Golden Reunion will take place Wednesday, May 10, through Thursday, May 11. The reunion starts with a dinner Wednesday night to welcome all attendees. This is an excellent opportunity to see old friends, meet new ones, and share stories with others. 
On Thursday, the day will start with breakfast, followed by a campus tour. Attendees will get the chance to see how much the campus has changed and find their bricks on the Walk of Honor. That night, our Golden Grads will be honored during a special dinner where they will receive their Golden Diplomas to commemorate this extraordinary milestone. 
The evening will conclude with a special Golden Ambassador Society Induction for the graduates in attendance. This alumni chapter includes those who graduated 50 or more years ago. Members of the Golden Ambassador Society are invited back to UL Lafayette in the fall during Homecoming Week for the Golden Ambassador Society Dinner.
Tammy Broussard, special projects coordinator at the Alumni Association, has been planning Golden Reunions for the past twenty years. “It’s such a special milestone in one’s life that you should be proud of,” Broussard said. She has enjoyed working on this special event and loves meeting so many outstanding alumni each year. “My favorite memories from past Golden Reunions are the stories,” Broussard said.
The Alumni Association looks forward to welcoming the Class of 1973 back to campus for this monumental occasion. Visit the registration link for more information on the entire schedule of events and hotel accommodations.
