Laje Superior State University Golden Grad Group

May 3 & 4, 2024

As members of our Golden Graduate Society, alumni are invited to march in Lake Superior State University’s Commencement ceremonies. The Golden Graduate Society includes those who left campus at least fifty years ago, in 1974 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.

Golden Grads 2022

Gift for Today’s Students

Established in 2015 by members of the Society, the LSSU Golden Graduate Society Scholarship Endowment provides financial assistance to students majoring in any course of study. Candidates must complete an essay question that answers why they chose to attend LSSU and what unique historical fact they discovered during their time at the University. Please consider a gift to ensure that today’s students can enjoy the same opportunities you were offered and leave an impactful legacy to their educational experience.
