Class of 1971

In our college days, Greenpeace made its debut, NASDAQ was introduced to the stock market, and “Love Story” was at the top of the box office. In the years since, saving the earth has become as easy as walking the recycling bin to the curb, the market has taken more than a few dips and upswings, and young lovers Ali McGraw and Ryan O’Neal are still tearjerkers.

Thank you for continuing to share your life with Emory and your fellow classmates. We hope your return to campus brought back a slew of memories and allowed you to make many new ones.

Reunion volunteers are the heart of Homecoming and reunions at Emory. They bring valuable knowledge of their class and encourage others to participate in class activities and class giving. Reunion volunteers do more than plan an event; they inspire others to a life-long connection at Emory. If you're interested in being part of your reunion committee, email  


Emory will always be a part of your life. Even though you are over 40 years removed from college you can still get involved with your alma mater. Help us spread the word about all that Emory has to offer as an admissions representative or serve as a career resource for alumni.


It’s a different world from 1971, but your ties to Emory will always remain — through friendships, learning and a top-notch degree you carried out into “the real world.”
