About 65 members of the Class of 1961 are returning to campus this weekend for a reunion 50 years after they graduated from NC State.

Among the weekend activities are a golf outing at the Lonnie Poole Golf Course on Centennial Campus, a tour of the JC Raulston Arboretum and a campus overview provided by the University Architect’s office.

Attendees will get a chance to learn from some of NC State’s best professors as part of the “Classes without Quizzes” program and hear from Chancellor Randy Woodson during a Forever Club Luncheon on Saturday.

In the spirit of the occasion, our blog this week will feature photos from NC State from 1960 and 1961, courtesy of the Historical State collection at NC State University Libraries.
