Welcome Class of 1983

“Our 40th reunion is upon us! Can you believe it has been 40 years? Forty years since we danced endlessly in the basement of Graham 100s pipe stage. Forty years since we ate countless meals in Benson, before there were so many meal choices. Forty years since we crammed fact after fact into our heads for finals week. Forty years since we attended the Sunday 10 p.m. student Mass in the Mission Church, slightly inebriated. Forty years since sneaking in to The Hut. Come back to campus and relive those memories. I want to see you this October at Grand Reunion where there is more to experience than ever before. Learn To Party Class. Let us Show these Young Broncos that We Had the Spirit and Still Do.

- Keith Casey ’83 and Marte Formico ’83
