Celebrating alumni reunion weekend

Posted on May 6, 2013 in Alumni News and News

Each year, alumni gather to celebrate their 50-year anniversary of graduation from the university.

Members of the Class of 1963 flocked to the Hill this weekend for reunion events including golf at the Lawrence Country Club, a tour of the Spencer Museum of Art, presentations and bus tours of campus. The reunion’s kickoff lunch featured a panel of KU students, including the 2012-13 student body president, Hannah Bolton, and leaders from the Student Alumni Leadership Board.

Class members were presented with their gold pin commemorating 50 years as a graduate during a ceremony in the ballroom on Friday night.

On Saturday, members of the Gold Medal Club met for their annual luncheon. The Gold Medal Club was founded in 1949, and each year in April the club hosts a Gold Medal Club pinning luncheon to elect the slate of new officers and recognize class members who have not yet received their gold pin.

Reunion attendees also enjoyed a presentation of “There’s No Place Like Home,” the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary about the purchase of Naismith’s rules.
