Golden Ibis Society

Every year we celebrate the achievements and contributions of our graduates that make up the Golden Ibis Society. For more than 50 years they have left an indelible mark on the legacy of the University of Miami.

The Golden Ibis Society, formerly known as the Old Timers Society, is a long-standing society that was started in 1975 by the late Ruth Linder Sutton, A.B. ’30, and led for 22 years by Helene Putnam Kichefski, B.B.A. ’42.


This tradition continues to be an unforgettable event during Alumni Weekend and Homecoming. Gather among friends to celebrate the past, present, and future of our most cherished graduates!


Thank you to all of you who attended the 37th Annual Golden Ibis Society Brunch and celebrated your place in history with us as we honored all alumni during Alumni Weekend & Homecoming 2013. We hope you enjoyed your return to campus and that you will make plans to visit us again next year for Alumni Weekend & Homecoming 2014.
