We're Here to Celebrate You!

We’re excited to honor the California State University, Los Angeles’ Half-Century Club, a distinguished group of more than 12,000 alumni who graduated from the school at least fifty years ago. These alumni have been foundational to the University through their philanthropy, engagement, and accomplishments. Each year, the University recognizes the class celebrating its 50th reunion with induction into the Half-Century Club. 

This year, we have the honor of inducting alumni from the class of 1970 as the newest members of this venerable group. These past months have probably been the hardest, most stressful months for many of us. Faced with current extraordinary circumstances, we're unable to invite Class of 1970 graduates to the traditional campus luncheon to be formally inducted into the Half-Century Club.

While we are not able to meet in person this year, we hope that this space will serve as a reminder that California State University, Los Angeles is more than a physical place. Your Cal State LA Alumni Association offers a community and a sense of place no matter where you are in the world. Although this does not replace the fond memories made at an in-person reunion, it is a great opportunity to celebrate you and your accomplishments and celebrate each other as one community.
