Golden Class

The Golden Class Reunion activities will begin with the Golden Diploma Ceremony during the May Commencement Exercises on Friday, May 1, 2015 at 6pm and end during Homecoming Weekend in October.  At Homecoming last year, the Class of 1964 donated over $68,000 and challenged the class of 1965 to reach that same goal. The Class of 1965 is thinking of raising $100,000. Six class members have committed to giving $1000 each, and some checks have already been written. They’re asking that each class member donate $1000 in order to help reach this goal. You may pay in installments throughout the year. The first installment of $300.00 is due by March 31st .The first installment will cover the cost for the reunion weekend  which will be jammed packed with fun events for the Class of 1965 to remember the good times they had at JSU.
