A schedule of Golden Graduates 2019 weekend is below.  We will continue to update events as they are confirmed. This exciting Northeastern tradition has become one of the most enjoyable programs of the year, and we hope to see you there!

Each spring, Northeastern University celebrates its long-standing relationship with our most seasoned alumni, our Golden Graduates. Through a series of special events, you will revel in the history of Northeastern and Boston, reconnect with classmates, and make new memories and friends. All Huskies who graduated 50 or more years ago are invited to join us to celebrate their Northeastern pride with fellow distinguished alumni.
