Cherish the memories of 50-Year Reunions

Last updated March 31, 2020

Due to increased COVID-19 (Coronavirus) activity and the rapidly evolving advisories, the university has made the difficult decision to cancel the 50-Year Reunion to be held this May. Instead, Emory will formally celebrate your reunion and the festivities of Corpus Cordis Aureum in 2021 alongside Commencement activities with the Class of 1971.  We are working diligently on additional ways for you to engage with the university throughout your year. Look for interesting things to come!

Giving in honor of your 50-Year Reunion

Why give?

Your 50-year reunion is not only a chance to celebrate lifelong friendships, recognize the accomplishments of classmates, and commemorate an important milestone in your life with Emory, but also marks an occasion to give back to your alma mater and support current and future generations of talented Emory students. Our alumni take the lead in philanthropy, supporting amazing students, brilliant faculty, and incredible research and programs. We hope you will continue this tradition and consider making a celebratory gift in honor of your 50-year reunion to an area of Emory personally meaningful to you.
