Introducing the Half-Century Club: Honoring senior alumni at Kellogg Reunion 2019

The 2019 Kellogg Reunion will feature the launch of a special group for some of our most distinguished alumni: The Half-Century Club, for alumni who graduated more than 50 years ago.

Previously, the reunion structure finished with classes celebrating their 55th reunion. We are fortunate to have such a dedicated group of alumni beyond their 50th milestone, so this special part of the Kellogg family will now be honored by receiving an annual invitation to return to campus and celebrate their reunion.

Highlights of the Half-Century Club Reunion experience include:

  • Special recognition item and exclusive events
  • Private room at the Saturday Night Field Museum party with dinner and champagne
  • Reflecting on the Kellogg experience during Story Share sessions

The inaugural gathering of the Half-Century Club will be at Reunion 2019, May 3–4.
