Class of 1968 Golden Reunion

Can you believe how fast time has flown by since our last reunion at Middle Georgia College? The education and experiences we enjoyed together have helped form us individually and collectively. Our classes have developed a unique bond over the past 50 years that we want to maintain. With the assistance of the Development and Alumni Relations staff, we’re planning our 50 th Golden Reunion on Saturday, October 20, 2018 and ask that you please save this date for our event.

It is a perfect time to recall how MGC has shaped our lives and the opportunities our MGC experiences have afforded us. It is also a time to celebrate and have some fun! Some of us have not seen each other since our 25th reunion so we hope everyone will join us to celebrate our 50 th Golden Reunion.

Exciting things are happening with the transition to university status and expansion to five campuses. For those of you who have not been to the campus recently, you will find that it has changed in appearance in some ways, but the historical connections and the dedication to excellent education for students in the region remains.

The evening of October 20, we will host our 50 th Golden Reunion dinner on the Middle Georgia Macon campus. Join us for music, food, and reminiscing. We will hold a class photo prior to the dinner and everyone who attends will receive a commemorative photo.

Our reunion weekend will end with a farewell breakfast on the Middle Georgia Macon campus Sunday morning to extend safe travels to all and to have one final visit.
