Have a Minute? RSVP for the 1962 50th Reunion!

The UMD Class of 1962 will be celebrating their 50th year reunion in Duluth on October 19 & 20. The dates are quickly approaching and there is still plenty of time to RSVP for this wonderful event, and what a great weekend to return to UMD as it also happens to be our Homecoming weekend!

The reunion activities begin with a dinner on Friday, October 19 at 5:00 pm. Catch up with friends and enjoy an exquisite dinner experience at the Kitchi Gammi Club. If you’d like to bring photos from your days at UMD, please do! Photos are a great way to bring up great memories and share a laugh with classmates.

Saturday, October 20 will continue the trip down memory lane. A short program will take place at the UMD Library Rotunda at 9:30 am with coffee and rolls to be served. Then, see what’s new at UMD with a campus tour beginning around 10:00 am. Enjoy lunch with UMD Chancellor Lendley (Lynn) Black in the Malosky Stadium Club Room before the Homecoming football game. The UMD Bulldogs take on the Bemidji State Beavers with the kick-off at 1:00 pm. Cheer on your Bulldogs from the comfort of the indoor Malosky Stadium Club Room.
