Fifty Year Club

The Colorado College Fifty Year Club was founded in 1976 and is a special part of our Alumni Association for those alumni who graduated 50 or more years ago.

Co-Presidents: Beth Anneberg Cooper '66 and Dan Cooper '66


The purposes of the Fifty Year Club are:

  1. To honor on the 50th anniversary of each Colorado College class the members of the class, graduates and non-graduates alike.
  2. To recognize their service to the Colorado College Alumni Association and to the development of Colorado College.
  3. To provide a program of interest to the individual members of the organization and to provide a means for uniting the efforts of members in making Colorado College a better college.
  4. To assist as requested the upcoming Fifty Year class in planning its 50-year celebration.

During the induction ceremony, held each year at Homecoming, members receive a Fifty Year Club diploma and a special medallion. All members are invited to attend the Annual Meeting during Homecoming and the Fifty Year Club Holiday Tea each December.


50th Reunion

Every year, alumni celebrating their 50th reunion return to campus and enjoy a variety of class-specific events. Congratulations to the Class of 1969, which was inducted during Homecoming Weekend 2019. See photos here.
