Golden Reunion Celebration - Classes of 1972 and 1973

Mark your calendars for July 10-13, 2023, as we celebrate the Classes of 1972 and 1973 during a spectacular celebration! 

The time of your Golden Reunion gathering is fast approaching! Your alma mater looks forward to celebrating your Golden Reunion with you July 10-13, 2023.

The 50th year class reunions have grown in attendance and excitement as alumni return to reconnect with beloved classmates, friends and the university. We are delighted to prepare a weekend full of activities in your honor!

We have received wonderful feedback from the Class of 1970 & 1971 who were here on campus this summer. They shared how much they enjoyed staying in the dorms, having class led Chapel, dedicated time to reconnect, and the very special new tradition we created of presenting each class member with their Golden Medallion and being recognized for your service of 50 years to the Church and world at the final banquet.   They also shared how much they enjoyed seeing members from an additional class providing more opportunities to reconnect. The feedback was very helpful, and our team reviewed it to develop a wonderful experience for your classes. We pray that you will mark the calendar and save these dates! 

We sincerely hope you come home to Concordia to celebrate, share your favorite memories and nurture your enthusiasm and love for Concordia, past, present and future.  We do need your help.  I am in search of about 4-5 people who would be willing to serve on the Reunion Committee to help provide some input into the schedule and activities.  Please send me an email or leave me a voice message to share your interest.  

Registration will open in July 2022, one year prior. We will also have dorm space available for lodging—for either couples, singles or roommates! So, start calling your friends and planning your trip!

We look forward to welcoming you “home” to campus in July 2023 and presenting you with your “Golden Medallion”.
