Welcome Class of 1978

“Dear fellow Broncos from the Class of 1978, Save the dates! I’m reaching out because our 45th Reunion is coming up during Grand Reunion Weekend October 12-15, 2023. It’s hard to believe that almost five years have gone by since our last class gathering. Many of you have not seen the campus for quite some time, others much more recently. The newly renovated facilities are modern and very welcoming. There is more to experience both on and off campus! I encourage you to come back for our reunion, and persuade the classmates you still keep in contact with to also attend. While we won’t be rolling kegs across campus or building a bonfire on the baseball field-there will be a variety of great food and drinks, old friends to reminisce with, and a long-standing tradition of Bronco camaraderie. Please plan on joining me this fall for our 45th Reunion weekend. Mark your Calendars.”

- Phil Iatomase ‘78
