Reminisce on your years at Grambling College while making new memories at Grambling State during the 2024 Golden Graduates Class Reunion

Each year, Grambling State University celebrates the long-standing relationship with a distinguished group of alumni who crossed the stage 50 or more years ago – known as Golden Graduates. Gramblinites from the graduating class of 1974 are cordially invited to celebrate with us at this year's Golden Graduation Reunion Week.

The weekend features­ the traditional practice of joining the Spring Commencement procession and experiences that are carefully crafted to celebrate your milestone anniversary class.

The list of events includes the following but is not limited to:

  • Welcome Reception
  • Campus Bus Tour
  • Golden Graduation Luncheon
  • Golden Soiree

Register by April 17

The registration fee for each Golden Graduate is $375 and includes all reunion events, golden academic regalia and diploma, and commemorative gifts. Guest registration is available for $175/person – this includes access to the reunion events. 

Give to the Class Gift

You are encouraged to contribute to the Class Gift Campaign. A suggested gift of at least $500 –  $10 for each year of your celebration – will go a long way. Your gift, regardless of the amount, will be included in the Class Gift presentation to GSU President during the Commencement Luncheon. Give Now
