FURTHER DETAILS

Spouses, friends and family are welcome to join you for all the events!

In addition to recognizing this golden class, Bulldog football teams from 1964, 1974, and 1984 are all coming back for the UMD vs. MSU Moorehead match-up.

Plans for the Class of ’64 gathering include a class mixer and pre-game tailgating party. Afterward, we’d love for you to stay for the football game and supper in the End Zone Alumni Hospitality Tent. If football isn’t your forte, you could take in the UMD Theatre Department production of “A Doll’s House” performed on campus at the Marshall Performing Arts Center.
