Class of 1961 will join the Gold Medal Club this weekend

Alumni Days 2011, May 12-14, will celebrate Iowa State's 50-year reunion class of 1961. About 250 alumni have preregistered for the reunion, including 150 from the class of 1961. The 50-year class will gather at a social Thursday evening in the Memorial Union and be honored during the Friday evening banquet at the Gateway Hotel.

Alumni Days opens with campus walking tours Thursday morning and concludes with a brunch at The Knoll Saturday morning. The alumni center is the home base and registration site for Alumni Days; daytime activities, such as demonstrations and laboratory tours, will bring alumni to central campus.

Special recognition also will be given to Gold Medal Club members from the classes of 1956, 1951, 1946, 1941 and 1936 during a Friday luncheon.
