50 years a Miner

Forty-four members of the class of 1964 — the last class to graduate from the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy — returned to their alma mater 50 years after graduation for the 2014 Golden Alumni Reunion May 20–21. 

Pictured below at the Millennium Arch outside Castleman Hall, the alumni gathered to celebrate and reminisce over luncheons, banquets and a campus update from Chancellor Cheryl B. Schrader. Alumni toured their departments and interesting campus spots like the Kummer Student Design Center.

The alumni, like Tom Chronister, MetE’64, Mike Devaney, EE’64, and Fred Dickey, EE’64 (at right), learned about the Human-Powered Vehicle Team and the 13 other teams that make up the Student Design and Experiential Learning Center.
