In 1959 Sac State students paid 25 cents per gallon to fill their tanks and drive to class. If you wanted to see a movie after an exhausting day of tests, that would be one dollar. Times have certainly changed for graduates of this era, many of whom will be returning to campus for their 50 year reunion.

The Golden Grads Reunion is an annual event hosted by the Alumni Association in the fall. The luncheon celebrates the lives of alumni who graduated from Sacramento State 50 or more years ago. Graduates, family members as well as University faculty, staff, and friends are invited to enjoy a lunch and a walk down memory lane that includes viewing memorabilia and photos.

Submit a Memory

We are also asking our Golden Grads to share memories of their days as a student at Sacramento State. Whether a story about your favorite professor or the time you met your college sweetheart, we would like to hear about it! Please submit your memory online.  We are also collecting photographs. Please submit your photos to alumni@csus.edu

Memories Lost and Found

Lost: Every year there are a number of your classmates that we are unable to invite because we’ve lost contact. Take a look and see if you can help us get more of your classmates to the reunion.

Found: Sometimes in answering ‘where is my classmate?’ we are the bearer of sad news. Remember classmates no longer with us except in our hearts.
