Class of 1968 Reunion Page

Homecoming and Reunion Preview

Plans are well underway for our 50th Class Reunion during Homecoming Weekend (October 25-28, 2018). And we want to see you there! Our goal is to get as many of our classmates together as possible and have the opportunity to visit, reminisce, and celebrate. Not only will we have the opportunity to gather as a class, but with all of our fellow Spartans from surrounding class years -- a true UD celebration like we used to have. While in Dubuque, we created memories and friendships to last a lifetime. Let's not miss this opportunity to make even more memories - so make plans to attend the party on October 26. Reunion invitation and more information to come. 

If you have questions regarding the Reunion Celebration, please contact one of the C'68 committee members listed below.

Invest in the Class of 1968 gift and share your story! 

In recognition of our 50th reunion milestone, we are asking you to Join us and Make an Investment in the Class of 1968 Gift. We are well on our way to achieving our $25,000 goal. But we need your help.

Our investments will establish the Class of 1968 Endowed Scholarship that will leave a lasting legacy for Spartans to come. Each of us was personally impacted by scholarships or someone who helped us with our UD education. And this is our opportunity to pay it forward. You’ll learn more about how each of us was personally impacted through correspondence you will receive over the summer and early fall. We will also post them on this page. In the meantime, we invite you to share your UD story and personal testimonial to how scholarships made a difference in earning your degree. 


See Who's Coming!
