Badger football game in 1971

Your health is our top priority. The Wisconsin Alumni Association (WAA) will follow all applicable COVID-19 guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our guests for this in-person event. Check back to this page for updates regarding changes to the event in accordance with changing conditions or local guidelines.

Fifty years ago, the 1971 May Day protests contesting the Vietnam War filled the streets in Washington, DC; the voting age was lowered to 18; Walt Disney World opened in Florida; and you graduated from the University of Wisconsin!

Join together with your classmates for your 50-year class reunion. This reunion is a golden opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new memories when WAA honors your class.

Find out how your class is leaving a lasting legacy on campus — and how you can contribute — with the Class of 1971 class gift.

Join the Class of 1971 50-Year Reunion Facebook group to reconnect with classmates prior to the event! This group is available exclusively to your class.

See more memories from your graduation year in the 1971 Digital Yearbook.

And the more, the merrier! We extend a warm welcome to the Class of 1970 alumni who will join your reunion weekend to continue their virtual 50-year celebration with these on-campus events.

RSVP by October 4 to secure your spot at this spirited event!
