On May 17–18, the Miner Alumni Association and Missouri S&T welcomed back 54 alumni from the Class of 1966 to celebrate their Golden Alumni Reunion.
With over 100 alumni and guests who traveled back to campus for this special event, it was the largest reunion hosted in recent history. Guests visited the Kummer Student Design Center and the hot glass shop during their campuswide tour. Sarah Jane and the Blue Notes performed evening entertainment while alumni and guests danced and reminisced about their memories from college. Alumni also toured their academic departments and heard a campus update from Chancellor Cheryl B. Schrader. The culmination of this two-day event occurred when the graduates re-enacted their commencement ceremony and officially earned the title of Golden Alumni.
