50 Year (’69) Reunion

50 Year (’69) Reunion

Can you believe that your class will be celebrating its 50-year reunion at Messiah College this year?  Homecoming reunions are a wonderful opportunity for alumni to reconnect with classmates and friends, relive special memories and renew their affinity for Messiah.

We welcome the Class of 1969 to join their peers for a time of reminiscing, reconnecting and sharing about the exciting things that have taken place over the past fifty years!  The Class of ’69 reunion will take place following our Golden Grad events from 10:00-11:30 a.m. in the Jordan Science Center, Oakes Museum.



Welcome to the Golden Grad Community!  We have assembled a full day of events on Friday, October 18th, designed specifically for our Golden Grads.  Each event below has been planned for those alumni who are celebrating or have already celebrated their 50th class reunions at Messiah College.  Registration foreach event is à la carte, so while we hope you will be able to join us for the entire day, you are more than welcome to come and go as you please.

Beginning in 2007, Messiah College launched a reunion giving program in conjunction with the 25th and 50th class reunions.  Two years later, we added the 5th and 10th class reunions as well.  The reunion giving programs provide a special opportunity for alumni to give back to the College as a unified class.  Milestone reunion classes are leaving a legacy of giving that sets an example for current and future generations of Messiah College students.
