A Message from Your Class Reunion Chair

Michigan Tech campus from the air

Alumni Reunion 2020 begins Thursday, August 6, with virtual content being posted on the reunion website. While this is not the way we would have liked to hold reunion, the Alumni Engagement staff has put together some fun content for us to see what’s going on at Tech and rekindle those memories of the Copper Country.

Be sure to log on to our Class of 1965 page and comment at the bottom of the page to share a memory or share what you’re up to now.

Also, if you haven’t contributed to our class gift effort yet, please consider doing so. Gifts of any amount to any area of campus will help current students and show what Michigan Tech means to us.

I look forward to interacting with you during our virtual reunion. Congrats on reaching this 55-year milestone!

Sincerely

Paul Fernstrum
Class of 1965 Reunion Chair

Honor Roll

All Class of 1965 members who give toward the Class Reunion Gift effort will be included on the class honor roll, but there will be a special emphasis placed on the Class of 1965 Endowed Scholarship Fund.

New gifts made between July 1, 2019, and the end of reunion (August 8, 2020)—no matter the size or designation—are counted in the reunion gift total.

Gifts can be made by mail, by phone, or online. Multiyear pledges (up to five years) are also encouraged, as the entire pledge amount will be included in the project total.

The honor roll is updated periodically. If you have made a gift and your name is not yet on the list, please email us or call 906-487-2400.
