Classes of 1964 and Earlier to Reunite

Whether it’s a year after graduation or 50-plus years, returning to Penn State as an alum is fun. Traditional Reunion Weekend—this year celebrating the 50th reunion of the class of 1964—is a great time for alumni to gather with classmates and relive memories of their college days. Plan to attend June 5–8.

Each year, the Penn State Alumni Association creates a full schedule of educational and entertaining activities for alumni during Traditional Reunion Weekend. From dinners to lectures to tours, there is something for every interest. Plus, alumni have plenty of time for catching up and socializing, strolling through campus, shopping downtown or slipping into the Berkey Creamery for a quick cone.

The weekend kicks off on Thursday with tours of Beaver Stadium (from the field to the President’s box to the team locker room) and the Arboretum at Penn State, featuring more than 17,000 plants. The day concludes with a welcome reception and ice cream social. Tours of the Blue Band Building and the new Pegula Ice Arena are available Friday, while bus tours of campus are also popular reunion events.

On Friday, the Class of 1964 will be inducted as Penn State Pioneers, a program begun in 1957 to honor alumni who graduated 50 or more years ago from Penn State.

Another popular program of reunion weekend is the Alumni Institute, now in its 64th year, which features some of Penn State’s best faculty members lecturing on a wide range of topics.

Other planned events include Saturday’s All-Class Luncheon, class dinners, receptions and college open houses. Reunion attendees can also have their photo taken for free by a professional photographer at the Nittany Lion Shrine.
