Class of ’63 to return in May

The Class of 1963 will celebrate its 50th anniversary at the Golden Alumni Reunion May 20–21 at Missouri S&T and the Comfort Suites in Rolla.

In addition to reconnecting with each other, alumni will tour their departments and learn more about what is happening on campus today. The Miner Alumni Association will host the alumni and present programs on the association, world events 50 years ago and MSM in 1963. The highlight of the event is a recognition ceremony, where class members receive their 50-year pins and certificates.
