Laje Superior State University Golden Grad Group

Golden Grad Reunion

May 6 & 7, 2022

As members of our Golden Grad Society, alumni are invited to march in Lake Superior State University’s Commencement ceremonies. The Golden Grad Society includes those who left campus at least fifty years ago, in 1971 or earlier. We define ‘graduation’ year as the last year a student was enrolled at the Soo Campus.

The honored class and those attending the reunion for the first time will be presented a commemorative medallion as a remembrance of this significant personal anniversary.

As part of the weekend festivities, each year we compile a Memory Book, filled with anecdotes, narratives and memories of our Golden Grads. Whether or not you can come to campus that weekend, we would love to include your memories in our book. Each year we add to the booklet, which serves as both a collection of memories and a historical guide. The entering class receives a complete copy of the booklet, and anyone can receive updates from classmates and fellow Hornets thereafter.
