"I was not very involved on campus when in school at UA. Since then I moved from the East Coast ending in Seattle where I met the most wonderful UA alumni. They became my life and turned me into an active forever-rabid Wildcat! Now I live in Tucson fulfilling my dreams!"

"Remembering UA, I think of being empowered and making lifelong friendships, especially in Phrateres. I graduated by correspondence after leaving mid-senior year. Skills learned at UA prepared me for careers in social work and business. I am proudest of my two sons and five grandchildren. I still love Michael Hauer '67."

"Still living in Tucson and cheering on the UA basketball and football teams at almost every home game. Taught math for many years at Rincon and Tucson high schools and then for a few years when semi-retired at the UA Math and Education departments. Both my sons graduated from the UA. I also love to travel."

"In a highly charged political climate in the late 60s, the UA participated in a relatively peaceful but substantive way and I was proud to participate in bringing nondiscriminatory off campus housing back to the UA. I worked with Swede Johnson, a vice president of the University who had previously served as UA Alumni Association director. Swede Johnson left a proud legacy for alumni. The UA Alumni Association is currently housed in a building named in his honor. If anyone wants to talk about these times, please contact me!"

"Being a Wildcat was a defining part of my life. I look back on the time as the foundation for my future and look forward to seeing friends from long ago."

"Finishing a career in Denver and will spend part time in Tucson. I hope to see many alumni in the Old Pueblo."

"I look forward to seeing as many people from the Class of '68 as possible. Every time I see a television special about the "turbulent '60s, I wonder how any of us made it to this ripe old age. So get your ripe old self back to Tucson this fall and help us celebrate."

"I am retired and living in Hot Springs, Arkansas. I am looking forward to the reunion where I will reunite with four fellow alumni and spouses."

"Fifty years ago I received my bachelor's degree in the Department of Systems Engineering. I stayed on another year to complete my master's of systems engineering and was commissioned as a second lieutenant in 1969. I went on and received a doctorate degree at Johns Hopkins University in operations research and industrial engineering. I joined the faculty in 1972 and retired as professor emeritus in 2016. I am looking forward to meeting my graduating class of 1968."

"Where did those 50 years go? Looking forward to the celebration!"

Mark Fine

"I hope to see some of the 1967-68 GA's from the HPE Department. It was a great year and I have many fond memories!"

"It will be great to connect with old teammates and friends."

Bill Lueck

 

"My four years, plus one more for Masters, at the University of Arizona were wonderful! Not only did I meet my husband (of almost 49 years), but made many lifelong friends. One of our favorite things to do still is to stroll along the beautiful campus and reminisce our days as students there."

Delann Kurner DeBenedetti 
 

"In 2006, my husband and I moved from Denver to Vail, Arizona. I've loved being back on campus to cheer for Wildcat teams, attend concerts and plays, and now, I'm especially excited to return in October for Homecoming 2018! That's because we're moving back to Colorado (Grand Junction) this summer. See you in October!"
