ASU Golden Reunion

Golden Reunion

Celebrating your 50 years as a Sun Devil graduate

ASU’s Golden Reunion is a time-honored university tradition that recognizes Sun Devil graduates from 50 years ago. In May of 2023, we’re proud to welcome the class of 1973 back to the Tempe campus for their reunion celebration. 

Save the date! The ASU Alumni Association invites graduates to return to your alma mater May 7-9, 2023 in Tempe, Arizona. You’ll be recognized alongside ASU’s newest graduates and participate in a special ceremony centered around you — among other activities.

What to expect

Welcome reception: Kick off the celebration by meeting, reconnecting and sharing stories with classmates while you enjoy light hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. 

Campus tours: Revisit your time as a student, see what’s changed and glimpse into ASU’s future. Plus, take pride in being a graduate of the country’s most innovative school — seven years and counting! (U.S. News & World Report) 

University commencement: In signature gold robes, you and fellow Golden Graduates will be recognized alongside ASU’s class of 2023 by ASU President Michael M. Crow. More than 30,000 university guests may attend to witness this moment. 

Golden Circle induction ceremony: Gather in front of historic Old Main for a special candle-lighting ceremony where you’ll be individually recognized and honored. You’re an important part of our university’s growth and international reputation, now and forever. 

Registration for the event will be open in the fall. In the meantime, the Alumni Association would like to learn more about each graduate from the class of 1973 prior to the event. Please complete this form. We look forward to hosting you for your upcoming reunion!
