50th-Year Reunion

50th-Year Reunion

Honoring the Class of 1972

October 21-22, 2022
Northwest Missouri State University | Maryville, MO

The 50th-Year Reunion is an annual event and tradition of Northwest that honors graduates from 50 years or prior. This year, the 50th-Year Reunion will honor the class of 1972 and any graduates from previous years. A variety of events will be held throughout Homecoming weekend to celebrate 50 years since members of the class of 1972 received their diplomas. 

We have many events planned for your return trip “home” to Northwest. You certainly are not obligated to attend each event; however, we do hope you’ll participate in those activities that will involve the Class of ’72 on Friday.
