ASU Golden Reunion

Golden Reunion

Celebrating your 50 years as a Sun Devil graduate

Class of 1974

ASU’s Golden Reunion is a time-honored university tradition that recognizes Sun Devil graduates from 50 years ago. In May of 2024, we’re proud to welcome the class of 1974 back to the Tempe campus for their reunion celebration. 

Save the dates! The ASU Alumni Association invites graduates to return to your alma mater May 6-7, 2024. You’ll be recognized alongside ASU’s newest graduates and participate in a special Golden Circle induction ceremony centered around you — among other activities.

Additionally, you can book your room now at the Alumni Association's partner hotel, Hyatt Place Tempe/Phoenix/University. Located just across the street from Desert Financial Arena, receive a discounted rate as a Golden Graduate when you stay May 5-8, 2024. Book online here or call 888-591-1234 and mention the group code G-GOLD.

Are you interested in volunteering on our outreach committee? Each year, we need a group of dedicated volunteers to reach out to their fellow classmates and encourage them to come back for this special celebration. The outreach committee will begin meeting in November 2023.

[I] didn’t realize how special going through the events of the reunion, especially walking into the stadium between all the current graduates, would be… As I walked down the aisle between them, I felt reenergized by their enthusiasm.  It totally recharged me!
