Hosted by president and vice-chancellor, Dr. Vianne Timmons, this event takes place during MUNalum Days and is an invitation-only event. Attendees are treated to entertainment, a reception and the acceptance of their special 50 year pin.

The class of 1971 was supposed to be celebrated in 2021 but due to the limitations of COVID-19 health and safety protocols, we are delaying the celebration. This has been a popular event in the past and we want to ensure that as many of you who want to attend can. We are hopeful to get back to celebrating these distingished milestones in-person in 2022 and we hope you can join us when we do.

With respect to your pin, you can request to have it mailed to you or if you prefer, you can wait and receive it in person at a future celebration. If your preference is to have it mailed, please let us know by completing our online form here. If you need assistance, please email Helen Kelly at or call her at (709) 864-2313.

If you have any questions about the overall event, please contact Chris Hounsell at or (709) 864-2322.
