Golden Blugold Celebration

Celebrate a half century of being a Blugold

There is something special about being a Blugold, and it just gets better as time goes on. If it has been 50 years or more since you graduated from UW-Eau Claire, please join us at Homecoming to reminisce, honor fellow members, welcome new Golden Blugolds, and see how the campus has transformed in recent years.

The Golden Blugold Celebration honors the history and tradition of being a Blugold. We are planning to celebrate with you on Friday, October 15, 2021.

UW-Eau Claire alumni who graduated in 1971 or earlier have earned the title of " Golden Blugold" and are invited to a special weekend on campus Friday and Saturday, Oct. 15-16. 

Welcome back to campus, please join us for coffee and refreshments! Your morning will begin with a presentation in Woodland Theater, “Civil Discourse: The Kent State Protests at Eau Claire”, by using audio and imagery this presentation will take us to May 1970, a pivotal moment in the history of our university, as presented by Greg Kocken, Head of Special Collections and Archives Associate Professor. Social and lunch will be at 11 a.m. in Dakota Ballroom in W.R. Davies Center, with a 50 Year pinning following. The day will conclude with a lower campus tour with Campus Ambassadors, and the Flesch Family Welcome Center Ribbon cutting, dedication, and open house at 2 p.m.
