A time-honored tradition continues

Gold•en Grad•u•ate

1. a person who graduated from Northeastern University 50 or more years ago. ALL Huskies who graduated 50 or more years ago are among this distinguished group of alumni.

Regardless of where you are, what you studied, or which path you took on your journey after Northeastern—once a Husky, always a Husky!

Northeastern University continues its tradition of celebrating our most experienced alumni—our Golden Graduates. All Golden Graduates are invited to participate in our tradition of joining new graduates at the Northeastern University Commencement Ceremony. Enjoy other opportunities to reconnect throughout the weekend before the 50th reunion class caps festivities with its Golden Reunion Celebration.

We hope you will join us each year to share your Northeastern stories, memories, and experience with the new batch of graduating Huskies!
