Golden Reunion

Due to the pandemic, we have postponed this event until fall commencement, which will take place in December 2021, when we can safely gather together in person. 

Classes of 1970 and 1971: We look forward to welcoming you back to ASU for your Golden Reunion! Return to your alma mater, in-person and virtually, for the perfect chance to reunite with classmates and campus landmarks from 50 years ago. Join us for a special, all-about-you two-day celebration in December 2021 during ASU Commencement. 

Due to the pandemic, this will be a hybrid experience, offering some virtual opportunities and some limited in-person opportunities.


Among the many highlights during your return to Tempe:

  • Campus tours: Relive the past, experience the present, celebrate the future. Campus tours are designed to reignite memories, share our advancement and get a glimpse of the future of ASU. No doubt, you’ll see why ASU is the country’s “Most Innovative School” — six years in a row! (U.S. News & World Report)
  • Virtual gatherings: Reconnect online with your fellow classmates and your alma mater. 
  • University commencement: Participate in the recognition of the 2021 graduates. You and fellow Golden Graduates will be recognized by ASU President Michael M. Crow during the ceremonies that will be witnessed by as many as 30,000 university guests.
  • Golden Circle Induction Ceremony: Cap your return to ASU with ceremonies recognizing your milestone anniversary and honoring your role in the university’s growth and international reputation.
  • The Alumni Association adheres to ASU's Guidelines for In-Person Events and Meetings, which requires face coverings to be worn for the duration of the event, social distancing maintained, proper sanitization and additional safety precautions taken.
