One Rockin' Reunion
In July, UMD held a reunion for alumni who attended the university between 1960 and 1969. Four days of nostalgic, informative and entertaining activities included a cocktail reception on the Glensheen terrace, a music showcase in UMD’s Weber Music Hall, Dancing under the Stars with the Whitesidewalls, cocktail party, dinner and dance, golf, a Swenson College of Science and Engineering open house, a Dean’s Reception, lectures, Labovitz School of Business and Economics open house, ROTC open house, Glensheen Mansion tour with UMD alumni authors of Will to Murder, mini reunions and Sunday brunch. In addition, many attended The Great Hockey Get-Together and Game at the new Heritage Sports Center.
Here are a few comments from alumni:
“Four of the best years of my life — Sigma Phi
Kappa, BS in education, dances, and friends.” Nance Riddell Trempe
Mike Dean Receives
In Summer 2008, at the Back to the ’60s Reunion, Mike Dean ’67, past UMD alumni board president, was presented with the Chancellor’s Distinguished Service Award.
In a congratulatory address, Vice Chancellor Vince Magnusen
said, “Mike is a leader in the Duluth community. He recently retired
from the County Attorney’s office, but now is busier than ever.
One of the things that has kept him so busy is his service to UMD. He
has been an active member of the UMD alumni board for nine years and served
as President for two years from 2004-2006. He initiated, spearheaded and
implemented the first UMD Alumni Association strategic plan which has
effectively guided the organization for the last three years. As a board
member, he persevered with the development and design of the UMD on-line
directory. He is the decade of the ’60s UMD historian.”
