The 2013 Golden Graduates Celebration Committee is a group of alumni, faculty and staff who have volunteered to represent and assist with this year’s events. The committee is fully dedicated to serving their fellow graduates, faculty and staff who were part of the university between 1950-1963. Learn about what it means to them to be part of the program and what they are looking forward to for the 2013 Golden Graduates Celebration!
"I have extremely fond memories of my college days at CalState. The upcoming 'Golden Grad' event gives all of us 'oldy but goody' grads an opportunity to see classmates and to relive those special moments."
"My four years at CSULB were really enjoyable and at the same time required dedication and perseverance to overcome the obstacles of daily life. The education I received and the friendships formed still play an important part in my retired years."
"As a graduate of CSULB and living in Long Beach I am fortunate to enjoy the many activities that surround a major University. In my four years on campus as a student I earned an Elementary School Teaching Credential. With that credential I taught in the LB Unified School District. While on campus I made many life long friendships. Fifty years later I am still enjoying all that the University offers."
"As a former faculty serving on the Committee I have been able to renew acquaintances with former students who have returned for the event. I had the pleasure of enjoying time with Herb Farrar, one of my Baseball players of the 50's and Stan Guzy who is on the Committee this year."
"I thought by being part of my 50 Year Reunion, this will be a great opportunity to reconnect with those I studied and worked with while at LBSC. This reunion should be exciting and fun - possibly a start of new friendships."
"I have so much enjoyed being able to see the great progress the university has made and I am so proud to be a graduate of CSULB."
"I am looking forward to seeing other 1963 graduates. My years at CSULB (Long Beach State back then) were great years of my life with many friendships formed that I still cherish today. Many '63 graduates have stayed in this area. I have been active with Delta Gamma Alums and several other organizations through the University, as well as an active booster for CSULB athletics. I feel lucky to live near the school and be able to remain involved. I am proud to be a graduate of CSULB!"
