Bethel Alumni Logo

All members of the Class of 1974 are invited back to Bethel University’s campus on graduation weekend, May 4, 2024, to celebrate their 50th reunion!

Register Here

Each year, the 50th class members lead the commencement procession, are seated near the current graduating class and are recognized during the ceremony. The reunion class’s presence on campus is always an inspiration to the graduating class.

The attire for the reunion is business casual. We will walk around campus, so wear comfortable shoes. Golf carts will also be provided to help with transportation.

“It was such a privilege to be back at Bethel, meeting current leadership, and leading the graduation processional. This also gave my husband, who graduated from a secular university, some insight as to why Bethel is so special to me.”
    — LuAnn Klein ’73

“Visiting the campus and seeing former classmates brought back wonderful memories! As alumni, we were treated with wonderful meals, special recognition and privileged seating at the graduation.”
    — Shirley Tuckey ‘72

“It was great to see former classmates; reminisce about the way things used to be and to hear some of the life stories. It was an honor to walk in the processional at commencement. One of the highlights for me was the luncheon to hear about what God is doing now at Bethel and to hear stories of recent alumni.”
    — Tom Swank ‘70

“Returning to Bethel campus on my 50th graduation reunion was a special day. I was able to reconnect with former classmates and we were given a tour of the campus and relived many memories. It was a special honor to participate in the graduation ceremony by marching with current graduates and being recognized as the 50-year class. I believe this is the highlight of the year for Bethel University, and you do not want to miss this opportunity to participate.”
    — Harlan Gingrich ’72
