A new golden tradition, the Golden Toreros are alumni who have graduated 50 or more years ago. Reunion Weekend 2013 was the inaugural year for this group, as alumni from classes 1953-1963 were inducted, receiving a gold medal.
The Golden Toreros will be invited to the homecoming reunion weekend every year to reconnect with friends and witness the induction of the next 50th Reunion Class, and events are being planned that will invite the Golden Toreros back to campus every season.
