Golden Huskies

Join Your Fellow Golden Huskies At A 50+ Year Reunion

Mark your calendar for Oct. 17-19, and join your fellow Golden Huskies during NIU's 117th Homecoming weekend! For those that don't know, a Golden Huskie is anyone who graduated from NIU at least 50-years ago. Each reunion weekend, we feature those who are celebrating their 50th. This year, we are featuring the class of 1974.

  • Join our Golden Huskies 50+ Year Reunion Facebook Group to chat with your classmates.

  • Check out last year's photo album or reminisce as you look through the Class of 1974 Yearbook.

  • Let your friends know you’re coming, or share a little bit about what you have been up to since graduation by completing this form. Check out your classmates in our virtual gallery at the bottom of this page!

  • Join the Class of 1974 in leaving a legacy for future students by making a donation to the Golden Huskie Scholarship Fund, or any other area of interest at NIU!

  • Show off your 50+ years of Huskie Pride and pre-order your Golden Huskies t-shirt in July to wear your Huskie Pride throughout Homecoming weekend.
