Golden Graduates...Has It Really Been 50 Years!

A photo of the golden graduate cap and gown.

2023 will mark fifty years since your graduation from Alabama Agricultural & Mechanical University (AAMU).

Each May, AAMU celebrates the milestone anniversary of the Golden Graduates. The Golden Celebration for the Class of 1973 will take place May 4-7, 2023, highlighted by you receiving your Golden Certificate during the Spring Commencement on the beautiful campus of AAMU.

We look forward to honoring and celebrating your class in 2023 as you return to campus on the first weekend in May and again for the Best ReYOUnion Ever, when all classes ending in 3s and 8s return during Homecoming in October.

Registration for the Golden Celebration is available until March 1, 2023 (no exceptions).

If you need further assistance, contact our office at (256) 372-5287 or one of your Class Agents below:
