2018 ESM Golden Decade Alumni Reunion 


The ESM Golden Decade Alumni Reunion celebrates alumni who graduated 50 years ago, as well as alumni celebrating their 45th, 40th, 30th, 20th, and 10th reunions. All alumni who graduated 50 or more years ago are inducted as Golden Decade Fellows to honor their lifetime accomplishments.

The 2018 Golden Decade Reunion will take place on May 31 and June 1, 2018, and will honor graduates from the class of 1968 or earlier, and also alumni who graduated in 1973, 1978, 1988, 1998, and 2008.

We invite you to join us for a evening reception and celebration banquet at Toftrees Golf Resort on Thursday, May 31, and for our program of events in the ESM department on Friday morning, June 1, beginning with breakfast.

All attendees are also invited to the College of Engineering's "Meet the Dean" luncheon with Dean Justin Schwartz and fellow engineering alumni on June 1. You must register separately for this event on the We Are Weekend website.

Please note: This year's event will be held in conjunction with We Are Weekend 2018 (formally Traditional Reunion Weekend and Alumni Reunion Weekend). We Are Weekend is the premier Alumni Association summer event, designed to give Penn Staters of all ages, backgrounds, and interests an opportunity to customize their weekend schedule and spend time with family, friends, and classmates.
