Wayne State University hosts Golden Jubilee Reunion

September 28, 2007

Graduates will be inducted into the Alumni Golden Circle

Wayne State University graduates from 1957 and earlier will be inducted into the Alumni Golden Circle during the alumni association’s second annual Golden Jubilee Reunion on Friday, Oct. 5.

The reunion, a daylong event featuring tours and activities on campus and in the surrounding area, kicks off Homecoming weekend. The reunion begins with a Welcome Back to Wayne luncheon, followed by a bus tour of campus and the Midtown and downtown areas, as well as a special performance by student actors of the Hilberry Theatre program and a planetarium show in Old Main. Afterward, graduates will enjoy a dinner that culminates with their induction as charter members of the Alumni Golden Circle.

“This is an exciting opportunity both for our graduates of 1957 and earlier and for the alumni association,” says Executive Director Marguerite Rigby. “Alumni will be able to experience the changing face of campus while reconnecting with former classmates. And the alumni association is thrilled to have them back and induct them into the Alumni Golden Circle.”

Transportation will be provided to the reunion via buses at the Wayne State Oakland Center, 33737 Twelve Mile in Farmington Hills. Buses will depart at 11 a.m.; reunion festivities will begin at noon. The cost for the event is $50.

The next day, Alumni Golden Circle members are invited back to campus to attend the Homecoming parade and football game. As a bonus, Alumni Golden Circle members will receive free admission to the Alumni Zone hospitality tent by showing their commemorative lapel pin from the reunion banquet.
