Class of 1972 50th Reunion Celebration
What a milestone! Can you believe it has been 50 years since you graduated from the University of Delaware? While much has changed on campus during those years, we’re sure many of your Blue Hen friendships have remained.
Join both familiar faces and classmates you haven’t seen in ages at your reunion celebrations—there are two formats you may choose from (or you can attend both): an on-campus celebration that spans two days during Homecoming Weekend, October 21–22, or a virtual gathering on October 6.
Make sure you receive updates from UD! Update your information with your current email address.

You can help your reunion event be the best it can be through these three easy steps.
Tell your friends that you're interested in attending your reunion celebration on your social media accounts or in your class Facebook group and tag or share with your friends to join you! This is a great way to get the word out there and add a little friendly peer pressure.
No social media? No problem! Call, text, email or Zoom your Blue Hen crew to be sure all are on board for your reunion (and to talk about the not-so-familiar faces you’re looking forward to seeing again)!
