Event description
Join fellow alumni in celebrating the class of 1970's 50th reunion during All Gaucho Reunion 2020.

About this Event

Can you believe it's been 50 years already?

Join fellow classmates in heading back to campus during our 14th annual All Gaucho Reunion, April 22-26. Share memories, catch up, and reminisce on your time at our campus by the sea.

A year of rebellion, your graduating year sparked important discussions that made nationwide news. Whether your memories are of activism, hitting the books, or simply soaking up the sun, come share what UCSB meant to you.

Don't miss out on your chance to see how much the campus has changed in the last 50 years. With great chances to see new buildings, as well as time to see what's stuck around, your 50th reunion is a weekend that you don't want to miss.

The 50th Reunion events during the 14th annual All Gaucho Reunion (AGR) weekend will be added and updated throughout the coming months. You will receive a 50-year graduate pin at the first event that you attend and can proudly wear it throughout the weekend.
