UCSB Class of 1969 50th Reunion

Friday, April 26 at 3:00pm to 4:00pm

***Registration for additional reunion events are forthcoming***

Can you believe it's 50 years since you graduated from UCSB? You are invited to celebrate with fellow Gauchos at the Class of 1969 50th Reunion.

Your classmates are coming back to share memories of the old, fun, and changing times at the campus by the sea. We are looking forward to seeing you!

Perhaps you skipped class to protest outside North Hall or to surf at Campus Point. Or do your memories take you back to being holed up at your favorite desk in the library or a long coffee break at the UCen?

Campbell Hall is still the largest lecture hall on campus; the waves drift into Campus Point and Isla Vista.

The 50th Reunion events during the 13th annual All Gaucho Reunion (AGR) weekend will give you time to reminisce with friends at old haunts and learn how remarkably the campus has changed; You will receive a 50-year graduate pin at the first event you attend and can proudly wear it throughout the weekend.


For information about additional All Gaucho Reunion events, FAQs, and more, visit the AGR website.
