50 Year Reunion

Welcome Class of 1965 50th Reunion!!

Dear Class of 1965 graduates and non-graduate alums:

Mark your calendars because your Golden Jubilee 50th Year Reunion will be held October 16-18, 2015 during USD's Homecoming & Family Weekend!  Last October, we concluded an amazing homecoming weekend with the class of 1964.  Your classmates continued our brand new tradition for College for Men & College for Women alumni by being inducted as GOLDEN TOREROS at the Golden Toreros Dinner with the President during reunion weekend.  It was incredible fun and a successful weekend, building on other reunions from previous years!!  Begin preparing yourself for the class of 1965 milestone celebration by reviewing what we did last year!  Then check back, as we update information for the '65 reunion.  If you would like to help plan your class' reunion, you can contact the 50th Reunion &Golden Toreros Office at (619) 849-8106.
