The UNM Alumni Association invites the graduates from the Class of 1969 to the Golden Graduates and Heritage Club Weekend on Friday, May 10 and Saturday, May 11. 

Join fellow Lobos, friends and classmates in celebrating the Golden Graduates of 1969 and Heritage Club members — alumni who have graduated 50 or more years ago — for two days of fun events, including participating in UNM’s Spring 2019 Commencement. 

Activities include:

Friday, May 10 at Hodgin Hall Alumni Center:

  • 8:30 a.m.–2 p.m.: Open house and robe fitting

Saturday, May 11 at Pete McDavid Lounge, Dreamstyle Arena, “The Pit”:

Golden Grads are asked to share their words of wisdom with the class of 2019. If received before April 15, your message will appear in the commencement program. Visit the UNM Alumni website for more information.

The UNM Alumni Association has also reserved special room rates for our Golden Grads and Heritage Club members traveling to Albuquerque for the weekend’s festivities. Booking details and rates can also be found on the Alumni website.

Friday’s festivities will reignite your Lobo spirit as Golden Grads are invited to Hodgin Hall Alumni Center, located on UNM’s Main Campus, from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. to enjoy coffee, tea and treats while being fitted for their golden robe and mortar board for Saturday’s Commencement ceremony. While waiting to receive your robe, explore Hodgin Hall Alumni Center, browse through yearbooks and take photos. 

Join in the campus walking tour starting at 9:30 a.m. at The U in front of Hodgin Hall. Explore UNM’s beautiful campus on this one-hour tour, glimpse the past and see how the University has grown. 

On Saturday, kick off the 2019 UNM Commencement with a Golden Graduate procession. Then enjoy the rest of the commencement ceremonies in your place of honor—right in front of the stage, inspiring the next generation of UNM graduates.
