50th Reunion

Remembering your pride as a Bear in the 1970s brings back incredible memories. We invite you to take a walk down memory lane by joining us for your 50th Class Reunion on April 24-25, 2020. Start collecting pictures from your college days and get ready to reminisce the good old days – back when life was simpler and the feelings were groovy. We hope you will join us for a fun filled weekend with your favorite Bears on the Lenoir-Rhyne campus.

We want to commemorate this special anniversary with a strong showing of support for our reunion class gift. The goal is to raise $500,000 in honor of our 50th Reunion, and we seek to have 100% class participation. Gifts of any amount are appreciated and help us reach our goal. We also ask that you consider maximizing the impact of your gift through a multi-year pledge, an endowed gift, or an estate gift to ensure the financial well-being of the University long term. 100% of the proceeds raise go to benefit Lenoir-Rhyne students and the campus community.

Celebrate Lenoir-Rhyne through giving back and helping our fellow Bears. Your gift will help provide a transformative educational experience for a deserving student. Let’s show the class of 2023 what it means to be a Bear for Life. Give today and ensure the LR experience remains strong for future generations of Bears.
