Join fellow classmates and head back to campus during our 14th annual All Gaucho Reunion. Share memories, catch up, and reminisce on your time at our campus by the sea.

 

Register for 50th Reunion Events

Perhaps you skipped class to protest outside North Hall or to surf at Campus Point. Or do your memories take you back to being holed up at your favorite desk in the library or a long coffee break at the UCen?

Campbell Hall is still the largest lecture hall on campus; the waves drift into Campus Point and Isla Vista. UCSB has grown from 10,000 students in our freshman year to over 24,000 today.

The 50th Reunion events during the 14th annual All Gaucho Reunion (AGR) weekend will give you time to reminisce with friends at old haunts and learn how remarkably the campus has changed. You will receive a 50-year graduate pin at the first event you attend and can proudly wear it throughout the weekend.

Register for the Class of 1970 event which starts with the TGIF on Friday, April 24.
