The MTSU Office of Alumni Relations is issuing a call for all Golden Raiders -- university graduates and students from the Class of 1964 and earlier -- to attend the annual reunion during Homecoming 2014 Oct. 17-18.
The Golden Raiders Society is for those who graduated or attended 50 or more years ago. This year, the Class of '64 will be inducted into this special society.
The induction luncheon will be held at noon Friday, Oct. 17, in the James Union Building's Tennessee Room. The reservation deadline is Friday, Oct. 10. Call 615-898-2922 or 800-533-6878 to register. University President Sidney A. McPhee and National Alumni Board President Paula Mansfield will perform the induction ceremony.
All past inductees are encouraged to return to campus for the homecoming celebration and share in the induction of the newest class, said Rhonda King, Alumni Relations assistant director.
"It is a special occasion that celebrates one of life's major milestones," King said. "... While the reunion provides an opportunity to see how campus has changed since their graduation, the focus of the event is to recognize those whose foundation we stand on today."
The event is a chance for alumni to pause and reflect on what they have accomplished in life, King said, and how the then-Middle Tennessee State College played a part in their successes.
"It's very fitting this reunion takes place during homecoming, which provides a weekend full of Blue Raider camaraderie," she said.
