Class of 1964
Thank you for all who attended your Class Reunion! It was a wonderful night at Newman Alumni Center. Special thanks to all of the Class Reunion Committee Members, without your hard work and dedication the reunion party would not have been possible. This group spent time making calls, flipping through yearbooks, talking during conference calls, and sharing ideas to develop a memorable and unforgettable event.
What a memorable weekend we had, and how time flies –the Reunion Parties, Alumni Avenue, and the North Carolina vs. Miami game were just some of the highlights to this amazing weekend. No matter how distant or near your memories of UM are, Alumni Weekend and Homecoming was the perfect opportunity to celebrate our place in UM’s history.
Thank you to all of you who celebrated your place in history with us as we honored all alumni during Alumni Weekend & Homecoming 2014. We hope you enjoyed your return to campus and that you will make plans to visit us again next year for Alumni Weekend & Homecoming 2015.
