40th Reunion

Class of 1979

In honor of our milestone reunion, the 40th Reunion Committee will set an overall fundraising goal. We ask each class member to step up and play a part in achieving this goal in honor of this very special occasion.

Dear Friends:

Next year marks another milestone for our class – 40 years since our graduation from Georgia Tech!  This coming year is an exciting time for our Georgia Tech classmates as we celebrate the fortieth anniversary of our graduation from Georgia Tech.  

As chair of the Class of 1979 50th Reunion Committee, I invite you to come back to Georgia Tech for Homecoming & Reunion Weekend 2019.  Our main objective is to have a successful reunion.  In addition to renewing relationships, making new friends and reminiscing about our years on campus, there will be numerous activities for you and your family to partake in during the weekend.  On Friday, there will be a host of campus tours and seminars and that evening we will host a class reunion party.  On Saturday, you and your family can enjoy the Cake Race, Ramblin’ Wreck Parade, Ramblin’ Wreck Rally Tailgate and the GT football game. 

Homecoming & Reunion Weekend is a longstanding tradition at Georgia Tech. In addition to coming home to Georgia Tech to visit with classmates and friends, that tradition includes making a 40th Reunion gift to our alma mater. Our Reunion Committee will set an overall fundraising goal and I invite you to join our class in making a gift of any level to Georgia Tech in honor of this milestone reunion.

I am really looking forward to our 40th Class Reunion and hope you will make plans to be in Atlanta in the Fall of 2019.  Once an official Homecoming date has been announced, you will receive more information about our special reunion plans.
