Class of 1968 50-Year Reunion

June 1–2, 2018      

UW campus

IT WAS AN END AND A BEGINNING. We entered the UW young and innocent, and we left as adults exploring a new world. We entered looking for an education, and we left determined to make our mark.

Our college years shaped who we became, and those lessons resonate to this day. Return to campus for a weekend of memories, friends, fun and reflection. Together we’ll celebrate those tumultuous, exciting days and the Husky legacy that we all share.
