Celebrate 40 Years! Class of 1980

Alumni Reunion 2020 has been canceled.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic,  Michigan Tech has decided to cancel the 2020 Alumni Reunion. The decision was difficult, but the overall health and safety of our alumni and friends is priority one.

The Alumni Engagement team is currently exploring alternative ways to engage with alumni and celebrate this year’s honored classes (1960, 1965, 1970, 1980, 1990, 1995, 2000, and 2010).  Information will be posted on the Reunion website as plans are solidified. 

Please contact the Alumni Office with any questions: alumni@mtu.edu or 906-487-2400.

Michigan Tech from the air


Welcome to the Class of 1980’s 40th reunion web page. It’s a special year for us! Eight classes, including ours, will celebrate a milestone anniversary during Michigan Tech’s Alumni Reunion, set for August 6–8, 2020.

“I’m looking forward to returning to Houghton and my alma mater, and I’m sure you, like me, have many great memories. Let’s do all we can to make this a memorable reunion celebration for our entire class.”

Jerry Philo, 1980 Reunion Chair

    Great to hear from you…
    I really will try to make it up for the reunion.

    Still living in upstate NY near the Adirondacks in Utica NY. An hour East if Syracuse and lake
    I tell people here I’ve moved to a big
    City and warmer weather.

    Tim with DTE Energy Regulatory Affairs (started out in the steam heating plant…thanks to thermodynamics!). Nancy with Eastpointe Schools as a Speech Pathologist.

    Looking at retirement, but working a little longer to keep 2 of our triplets on the health care plan!
    One of them is doing her Master’s research at MTU right now & starting med school in June. The one not needing our health care is an MTU grad! So happy to have two of them experience the best university in the country (daughter #3 -Kent State grad- regrets not going to MTU).

    We are always in Copper Country Alumni weekend, so hope to see you at Eagle Harbor Beach, the KBC, or at reunion activities!
