Class of 1968 

Dear Fellow Trojan,

Believe it or not, it’s been 50 years since graduation, and that calls for a celebration! On behalf of the Class of 1968, we are thrilled to invite you to join us for our upcoming 50th Class Reunion on November 9-10, 2018.

This fall we will have a chance to relive our campus memories. What a time it was!

It was a great time for USC football, as John McKay’s Trojans scored a 21-20 victory over the Bruins, secured the National Championship crown, and then triumphed at the Rose Bowl 14-3  over #4 Big-Ten champ Indiana. The Beatles dominated the top 40 for most of the year, and Jefferson Airplane played on campus. Songfest took over the Hollywood Bowl with more than 5,000 in attendance. Legendary USC baseball coach Rod Dedeaux served as host, with the great Hollywood composer Alfred Newman leading the orchestra in his composition “Conquest!” while, on the hill behind the Bowl, Traveler stood proudly under a spotlight.

Fifty years is certainly something to commemorate! That’s why the USC Alumni Association is planning a fun-filled program for Reunion Weekend 2018, including campus tours, school visits, faculty and alumni spotlights, an elegant dinner and plenty of time to celebrate with old friends and make new ones—plus all the excitement of USC Homecoming and football (USC vs. Cal). It promises to be two unforgettable days of all things USC!

Finally, as a show of support for the next generation of Trojans, please consider making a gift to any school or program at USC in honor of your special reunion. Join our Class of 1968 Facebook group to share photos and memories and connect with classmates before, during and after the festivities.

We hope to see you in November, and be sure to tell your fellow Class of ’68 Trojans to join us as well!

Fight On!
