Final Class Of University Of Chattanooga Celebrates 50th Reunion At UTC

Tuesday, August 27, 2019

UTC’s Office of Development and Alumni Affairs will commemorate the 50th reunion of the University of Chattanooga Class of 1969 on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 27-28, as part of the 2019 Homecoming celebration. Graduates of 1969 marked the last class of the University of Chattanooga before it merged with the University of Tennessee that same year. Alumni from this class, as well as preceding classes, are invited to reconnect with classmates and friends from the University of Chattanooga.

Reunion activities for the Class of ’69 begin on Friday, Sept. 27, with a luncheon and tour of the campus followed by a private dinner that evening. At 11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28, they will be formally inducted into the UTC 50-Plus Society by administrators and alumni officials in Patten Chapel. Reunion activities will culminate with a 50-Plus luncheon and tailgate at First Tennessee Pavilion leading up to UTC’s Homecoming football game against Western Carolina at 4 p.m. The class also will also be recognized during the game.

“We are thrilled to host this reunion event for alumni of the University of Chattanooga,” says Jayne Holder, assistant vice chancellor for Alumni Affairs. “UTC is committed to preserving the history of our alma mater, and each alumnus plays a role in telling the university’s story, no matter when they graduated. Once a Moc, always a Moc.”

Alumni from the entire community are invited to the Homecoming celebration during the week of Sept. 23-28. For more information about the reunion or homecoming activities, contact Andrea Lyons at 425-2345 or at andrea-lyons@utc.edu.
