Class of 1963 & Golden Terriers

Class of 1963

This fall, BU welcomes the Class of 1963 back to campus! We can’t wait to share all of the exciting developments with you, and to hear what you’ve been up to. Don’t miss this chance to see your old classmates and catch up with friends.

Golden Terriers (Classes of 1963 and earlier)

Golden Terriers are those special alumni that graduated from Boston University 50 or more years ago. You have a unique perspective about campus as you have seen it evolve into the world-renowned research university that it is today. You are a fun, respected part of our alumni family.

    Enjoy all these events or just sign up for one—the choice is yours. We look forward to seeing you and your fellow Golden Terriers back on campus!

    • Alumni Weekend Headquarters & Information Stations

      We have everything you need! Stop by Alumni Weekend Headquarters on Marsh Plaza to pick up your Alumni Weekend 2013 button, grab some BU SWAG, sign up for events, and capture memories in the “then and now” photo booth! Or just come by to relax and grab a cup of coffee in the “Alumni Weekend Lounge” – we’d love to say hi! Forget what you registered for?

      Need another parking pass? Lost on campus? We will have all this information for you.

      And what is an information station? BU’s Alumni Weekend information stations are like mini headquarters. There will be two stations on campus where you will be able to pick up your Alumni Weekend 2013 button and program, campus map, parking pass and ask any questions you may have about the weekend.
