The Golden Tiger Reunion is an annual celebration intended to complement the induction of the 50th reunion class into the Golden Tiger Society. During the celebration, Golden Tigers reunite with their former classmates and commemorate their induction by participating in a graduation-style ceremony. Each Golden Tiger will have their name called and will cross a stage to be presented with a Golden Tiger Society induction certificate and lapel pin. Clemson University and Alumni Association leadership will be in attendance to congratulate the new class of Golden Tigers. The classes of 1970 and 1972 will also celebrate their 50th reunion at this time.


Your Class of 1971 Golden Tiger Reunion Committee will be reaching out to you by phone to reconnect and invite you to join us for reunion. Be sure we have your correct contact information by visiting our website at
