This summer the University of Minnesota, Morris Class of 1964 and friends will return to campus for Morris’s inaugural 50th reunion. The first of its kind, this reunion marks an important milestone for the Morris campus. In addition to providing alumni the chance to reconnect and reminisce, it also offers them the opportunity to establish a new campus tradition and to relish a moment in time.

“This initial Morris entering class set an example for so many classes that have come behind it,” says Carla Riley ’85, director of external relations. “With this reunion, they will once again have the opportunity to lead by demonstrating their ongoing support of the institution. By gathering together 50 years after graduation, they are affirming their Morris experiences and celebrating the strong bonds they formed here.”

The reunion begins with registration and a social gathering on Friday, June 20. Registration continues the next morning and is followed by brunch as well as additional gathering and refreshment opportunities. The event concludes with a banquet on Saturday evening, June 21, in the Student Center’s Oyate Hall.
