Throughout the year, the Alumni Assocaition hosts or particiaptes in several reunions that bring alumni back to their alma mater. Some come back to campus often, some not so often. It is a chance for them to reconnect with their classmates, who sometimes haven't seen each other in a few years, and the University.

One of the highlights for the Alumni Association staff is to witness the joy and smiles that occur when classmates and friends reunite.

Some of the reunions are the Golden Reunion, Athletic Reunions and Special Interest Reunions. For information on these reunions, use the links located to the left.


Golden Reunion

The Golden Reunion is an annual event held in conjunction with the spring semester graduation. It is a 2 day event in which the Alumni Association honors the graduating class that has their 50 year graduation anniversary. During the 2 days, events are planned that bring back the graduating class to campus to relive campus moments, renew friendships and reunite with fellow alumni.


Athletic Reunions

Athetic Reunions occur less frequently than annual reunions and are usually organized by players of an individual sport and may or may not be tied to a specific coach. Athletic Reunions are always fun to attend to watch old teammates reunite and share stories and laughs. Some of the recent Athletic Reunions that have occured are:

  • The Faulkinberry Reunion - a reunion of football players that played under Coach Russ Faulkinberry
  • The Shipley Reunion - a reunion of basketball players that played under Coach Beryl Shipley


Special Interest Reunions

  • Red Jackets
  • The Freedom Four Desegregation Reunion
