You, our esteemed Golden Grads, have continually shown your tremendous support for your alma mater since earning your degrees over half a century ago. It is because of your continuous generosity and support that we have been able to extend the same quality education you received as a Miner to thousands of graduates who have come after you.

It is our hope that your education has proved paramount to the success you have experienced. You are invited to join your fellow classmates in making a valued contribution to your University to ensure the legacy of success and excellence continues for all future generations of UTEP graduates through the Golden Grads Endowment Scholarship Fund.

We ask for your help by donating an amount that correlates with your graduation year, $19.66, $196.60, $1,966.00 for example, or any amount of your choosing.

For a complete list of Homecoming activities, please visit our website, The website will be updated with activities as the weekend approaches.  You can also contact your particular college or department to request information about their specific activities.

In preparation for the reunion, we will be putting together a memory book of the class of 1966, so that you can see what your classmates have been up to for the last 50 years. Please complete the “Contact and Memory Book Information Form” and return it to us via fax or mail by September 7, 2016. Click here to download the fillable PDF form and e-mail to or fill out the form online at 

We ask that you also include a picture of yourself from 1966 as well as now. If you do not have a picture of yourself from then, please let us know so we can look in the Flowsheets.
