Class of 1957 50th Reunion to Be Held May 5-6

May 26, 2010

Mount Union College's Class of 1957 will celebrate their 50th class reunion during Commencement Weekend, May 5-6, 2007.

The Class of 1957 will have a chance to relive their Commencement ceremony by marching in the processional march at this year's Commencement.

'Nearly 50 alumni are coming back, including spouses,' said Anne Graffice, director of alumni and college activities and assistant to the President for special events. 'We hope that this new time of year and the exciting events being planned will become a tradition for Mount Union 50th reunions in the future.'

Kicking off the events will be a guided tour of the campus on Saturday, May 5 departing from the registration area at the Hoover-Price Campus Center (HPCC). A Golden Anniversary Luncheon for the Class of 1957 will follow at the President's Home.

The day will conclude with an alumni buffet in the Campus Grounds of the HPCC at 6 p.m. Classes from 1952-1962 are invited to join the fun and catch up with classmates and friends. A DJ will be there playing favorites from the 1950s and 1960s. The cost is $10 per person (free of charge to the Class of 1957).

On Sunday, May 6 from 7 to 9:30 a.m., a continental breakfast will be provided in the Campus Grounds. Commencement brunch will be held at 11:30 a.m. in the Peterson Field House. At 1 p.m. lineup for Commencement processional march will begin. The Class of 1957 is encouraged to participate in the line march along with students, faculty and board members.

Contact the Office of Alumni Activities if you interested in walking.

Let us know if you have earned any additional degrees since your 1957 Commencement and whether you have your own academic regalia or if we need to order it for you.

Following the ceremony, a reception will be held in the quad area under tents.

Alumni Weekend will be held in the fall at Homecoming 2007, scheduled for October 19-21.
