Golden Pickles Weekend

Golden Pickles Weekend

Important Update: The 2020 Golden Pickles Reunion has been postponed based on the announcement from Interim Chancellor Brian Cole on March 20, 2020. As soon as a decision about if/when an in-person commencement ceremony is made, we’ll be in touch with more information.

$150 per graduate* and $50 per guest includes:

  • Listed meals and activities
  • Commemorative photo book and 50th Anniversary commencement stole and pin
  • A portion of your registration ($50) supports the UNCSA annual fund, which directly impacts students through scholarships, guest artist programs and other campus wide innovations

*Graduate refers to the person who graduated in 1970. Alumni from other class years are welcome as Guests for this reunion.
