Golden 'Roos are Austin College alumni who graduated 50 years ago or more, including those who attended during that time but did not graduate. These alumni are honored each year as another class reaches their golden anniversary. This year, the Class of 1973 will have a very special Golden 'Roo Celebration, as we will also celebrate Austin College's 175th year during our Homecoming and Family Weekend! Class members will officially become Golden ’Roos during the weekend's Medallion Ceremony, while those previously honored are invited back to celebrate with them. Register online today!
Along with all of the other events during this big weekend, we've also planned special gatherings for our Golden 'Roos! Please see below for more details.
