Golden Bear Reunion

Golden Bears are LR alumni who have celebrated their 50th class reunions. A Golden Bear Reunion will be held every other year in an effort to help LR alumni stay connected to the campus and each other. Then next Golden Bear Reunion will be held in the spring of 2026.

Walk of Honor

Commemorate your milestone reunion year by purchasing a brick to be added on the Walk of Honor. With a gift of $250 to The Fund for Lenoir-Rhyne, you can personalize a brick that will be your connection to campus forever.
