Golden Graduates . . .
Has It Really Been 50 Years?!
Each year, UNM Golden Graduates — the class celebrating its 50th anniversary – are honored at the University of New Mexico Commencement. In 2016, the UNM Alumni Association will be honoring those alumni who graduated in 1966.
This special Golden Graduate recognition began as a salute to alumni unable to participate in their own commencement ceremonies because of military service in WWII and the Korean Conflict. Gold-colored robes are provided and the names of those returning for the ceremony are printed in the official program. In addition to participating in the Commencement ceremony, Golden Graduates are invited to a reunion reception, followed by the Heritage Club Dinner. This is a perfect opportunity to reminisce with former classmates and friends!
Save the date!
Please join us for Heritage Club and Spring Commencement Weekend 2016 on May 13-May 14, 2016. More details to follow.
Members from the 62nd anniversary class are invited to fill out forms to be included in memory books (a bound book created with photos from the 1965 Mirage Yearbooks, memorabilia from these decades, and most importantly memories from our graduates). Submit your memories online here.
