Class of 1971 – 50th Reunion

Congratulations, Class of 1971!

Congratulations on the 50th anniversary of your graduation from Montclair State! On July 20, a virtual gathering to reminisce and reconnect with Class of 1971 alumni was held.

During the virtual event, a video designed especially for the class was debuted. It showcased the campus as it looked in the 60’s and 70’s. You’ll also see the campus as it looks today.

We look forward to gathering in person to celebrate. An on-campus reunion will be planned for May 2022. Save the date! You’ll have an opportunity to lead the procession at the 2022 Commencement Ceremony.

We need your help to plan an unforgettable celebration. Interested in joining the reunion committee?  As a committee member, you will work with members of the Alumni Engagement team as well as fellow alumni to plan a successful reunion celebration.

Your role would be to:

  • Encourage classmates to participate in the reunion;
  • Conduct outreach via phone or email and invite classmates back to campus;
  • Support the class gift in honor of your milestone anniversary and inspire others to do so; and
  • Attend and enjoy your 50th reunion celebration!

Meetings are held monthly via Zoom.

If you are interested in serving on your 50th Reunion Committee or would like more information, please contact Karen at hackettk@montclair.edu or 973-655-4207.
