Golden Reunion 2015

Every year we honor our 50-, 60- and 70-year graduates during commencement weekend. The cost for the event is $15 per person, which includes a social, reunion dinner and walking at commencement.

On May 15 and May 16, 2015, we honored our classes of 1945, 1955 and 1965. View photos from the reception and commencement on Facebook.

Campus tour and social

The 50-, 60- and 70-year graduates who attended the reunion enjoyed a social, catching up with former classmates before watching a sesquicentennial video on the first 50 years of Washburn. The Alumni Association hosted the event at the Convocation Hall in the Bradbury Thompson Alumni Center.

Reunion dinner

The graduates joined us on May 15, 2015, in the Washburn Room at the Bradbury Thompson Alumni Center for a complimentary dinner, where they were reacquainted with classmates and met President Jerry Farley, university deans, Washburn administration and this year’s honorary degree recipients.

Walk at commencement

The graduates were honored during Washburn’s commencement ceremony. We provided them with a special alumni gown, then they walked with the graduating class of 2014 and received an anniversary medallion.
