Class of '71 - 50th Reunion

1971 Reunion class

Dear Classmates,

SAVE THE DATE!!  The Reunion celebrating the 50th anniversary of our graduation from Assumption University (Assumption College officially became Assumption University on June 10, 2020) is tentatively scheduled for the weekend of June 4-6, 2021. At that time, members of the class of 1971 will be formally honored as Golden Greyhounds! A preliminary schedule of events that will be part of our Reunion maybe found below. Nineteen of your classmates, currently serving on two committees, have enthusiastically volunteered to engage in the planning of social events and request monetary pledges in support of our 50th Anniversary class gift to Assumption University. 

The liberal arts education that we received at Assumption combined with the many extracurricular and social activities and opportunities on-campus and throughout the Worcester area community provided many opportunities to mature intellectually, spiritually, and emotionally. It was a formative time of discovery and questioning. In “tune” with the lyrics of Pete Seeger’s Turn, Turn, Turn, “it was a time to weep, a time to laugh, a time to mourn, and a time to dance, a time to rend and a time to sow.”  

Our 50th Reunion offers a special time to reminisce about the people and experiences that shaped our lives while at Assumption University.  As classmates, our mutual bond endures. The opportunity to share the journey of our personal and professional lives after leaving Assumption will serve as a crowning highlight of connecting with fellow classmates of the class of 1971. If for whatever reason(s) you have never attended a class of ’71 Reunion, then the 50th Anniversary Reunion is surely the time to make it happen. We encourage you to make a special effort to attend and contribute to the goal of bringing together as many classmates as possible.

Soon, you will receive a letter from Chairman Wayne Shepperd and members of the Class Gift Committee about making a donation in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the class 1971. Many unique options for individual giving are available. Our gift will be our legacy to help current and future students enjoy the best academic programs, support services, extracurricular activities, financial aid and scholarships possible – just as we did.
