Class of 1962 50th Reunion
September 28-30, 2012
It’s hard to believe, but we once a gallon of gas cost $0.32, the first Wal-Mart opened, and the first bag of flavored potato chips (salt and vinegar) were sold. That was in 1962, when we also graduated from Susquehanna University. It’s been 50 years and though things have changed, we can still celebrate our time at Susquehanna with our 50th reunion! Information is listed below to help in your planning. Rooms are going fast, so make your hotel reservation today. Don’t forget about our free shuttle service from the hotels to campus and back again starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday and running until 2 a.m. on Sunday.
