Record Numbers Attend Reunion 2010
A new attendance record was set for Reunion Weekend 2010 - an achievement the alumni association chalks up largely to the efforts of the Reunion 2010 Committee, which worked hard over the course of several months to generate enthusiasm.


Members of the Class of '65
The school was particularly honored to welcome back John Tower ‘35, of Dallas, Texas, and Tom Snedeker ‘36, of Pompano Beach, Fla., who both traveled independently to Golden to attend the reunion. Old acquaintances, they enjoyed catching up with each other, sauntering around campus participating in various activities.

The Celebration of Alumni Kick-Off Event on Thursday got the weekend off to a lively start. More than 350 alumni and graduating students helped honor the accomplishments of this year’s awardees.


Profs. (L. to R.) Berk, McCray, Benson, Maxwell, Revil and Reynolds answered questions after presentations at the faculty symposium, "Water in the West."
Other highlights of the weekend included the 50-Year Reunion Breakfast, where alumni were captivated by the personal stories of three remarkable student leaders. As always, class dinners held on Friday evening were the central event of reunion for many. The Faculty Symposium, “Water in the West,” was combined with the Student Project Exposition on Saturday morning. Both events received enthusiastic feedback, and the alumni association intends to offer a similar combination of events for Reunion 2011.

President Scoggins (R.) meets with Golden Miners from various classes.
The Departments of Mining, Geology and Geophysics Reunions capped off the weekend. Updates were delivered by Geology Department Head Terry Young, and professors Steve Sonnenberg, Hugh Miller and Steve Enders. Evaluations showed alumni were both impressed and proud of the many achievements of their respective departments and appreciated the opportunity to reconnect specifically with their department.

Reunion Weekend 2011 will begin on April 28th, so mark your calendars now. If you are interested in serving on the Reunion Committee, please call or email the alumni association (303.273.3295 alumni@mines.edu).
