Emory’s Class of 1964 will celebrate 50 years since graduation from Emory on May 12, 2014. We will mark the milestone with a weekend of celebration May 9-12, 2014 during Emory’s Commencement Weekend.
We’ll have a full weekend of festivities, including casual gatherings off campus, a tour of Emory today, a memorial service, and a formal reunion gathering on campus. We’re especially excited about a component of the weekend that is unique to your class and is a concept created by your classmates who are leading the organization for the celebration: an intellectual exploration of the cauldron of change in the world that was part of your time at Emory. We’re crafting a session with leading academics at Emory to explore the tumultuous times and events of the early 1960s. The events of that time influenced you then and in your lives beyond, and we’ll spend some time discussing it together.
Members from the Class of 1964 are also invited to join Corpus Cordis Aureum, a special group comprised of alumni who graduated from Emory 50 or more years ago. At the induction ceremony during Emory Commencement Weekend, the Class of 1964 will be be presented with specially commissioned medallions. Inductees will then participate in the Commencement procession and be recognized during the ceremony.
