UW-Eau Claire Golden Blugold and 50 Year Class Celebration-Postponed for 2020!

While we love nothing more than watching alumni from more than 50 years of graduating classes come back to campus for one weekend each fall, many decisions have been made for the academic year ahead that prioritize health and safety at UW-Eau Claire. One of these decisions include a very difficult choice to cancel in-person Homecoming activities the weekend of October 2-4 to keep our community of alumni safe and healthy.

We’ll be honoring the Golden Blugolds with “then and now” photos that show the 50-year transformation of our graduates in the half century since they donned their beanies and reported to Schofield Auditorium for lectures. And, we’ll be engaging our online Facebook community in sharing photos and memories from through the years at UW-Eau Claire. View online invitation here.

For more information where to send photos and memories, please contact the alumni office by e-mail message to alumni@uwec.edu or phone 715-836-3266.

The Class of 1970 will be invited to join the Class of 1971 to celebrate their 50 year class reunion on October 15, 2021.

UW-Eau Claire Homecoming 2020 - Virtual 

HOMECOMING 2020! One of these decisions include a very difficult choice to cancel in-person Homecoming activities the weekend of October 2-4 to keep our community of alumni safe and healthy. “Blugolds Fly Together” is a constant mantra among current students, and we find ourselves repeating it over and over. This mantra has become the theme for our fall celebration of alumni, because YOU are the largest part of our community of Blugolds. Just because we’re not flying together in person this year doesn’t mean that we can’t stay connected as Blugolds!

Although the details change from year to year, the traditions of the UWEC Homecoming carry on, and we are reminded each fall why this place is so special. Blugolds old and new alike can be guaranteed a weekend of fun times and exciting events, along with a perfect dose of nostalgia. The Alumni Association is working on creating opportunities to bring Eau Claire to YOU during the first week of October. Need some new Blugold apparel? Check out the pop-up online store here, now through September 30.

Please check the alumni homecoming page frequently for updates. View invitation here!
