Reunion Weekend set for alumni from 1965, 1960 and earlier

April 14, 2010

Penn State alumni celebrating their 45th and 50th reunions can join alumni from earlier years in returning to University Park for Traditional Reunion Weekend, June 3-6.

Sponsored by the Penn State Alumni Association, Traditional Reunion Weekend features a full slate of activities including campus tours, college open houses, class dinners, the All-Class Luncheon, receptions, sing-a-longs and more. One of the weekend's highlights is the Friday night induction of the Class of 1960 into the Penn State Pioneers, a program begun in 1957 to honor alumni who graduated 50 or more years ago from Penn State.

Other highlights during the weekend include tours of Beaver Stadium, Penn State’s green buildings and the University libraries; Old Main Bell Tower open house; and the 60th annual Alumni Institute, featuring 10 Penn State faculty members lecturing on wide-ranging topics from the plight of the Penn State elms to terrorism to human evolution.

The Traditional Reunion Weekend schedule and registration information can be found at http://www.alumni.psu.edu/events/reunions/traditional.htm online. Registration for the reunion is free for members of the Penn State Alumni Association and $50 for non-members. Additional fees are charged for some meals during the weekend.
