Dear Jackets,

Wow, Class of 1982, it is our 40th Georgia Tech reunion year. Hard to believe…. One of the benefits of 40 years is that it allows us all to gain perspective on how much our time at Georgia Tech shaped our personal lives both professionally and personally.

With that in mind, the Class of 1982 40th Reunion Committee feels Tech’s reunion tradition is a terrific opportunity to reconnect with classmates and friends during Homecoming & Reunion Weekend, October 7-8, 2022. Plan to join us on campus during an event-filled weekend starting on Friday morning with seminars at the Global Learning Center, followed by the President’s Address and campus walking and bus tours. The day will conclude with our reunion party that evening in the Exhibition Hall.

Saturday will start with the Ramblin’ Wreck Parade followed by a tailgate on Tech Green lawn and then the Georgia Tech vs. Duke football game. You can register for any or all of these events in August.  Stay tuned.

Roll Call remains one of Georgia Tech’s long-standing and greatest traditions. June 30th marks the end of Tech’s 75th Roll Call. Give today in support of scholarships and programs that will benefit Tech’s investments in current and future Yellow Jackets.

If you have missed a year or two in Roll Call Giving, Roll Call’s Buy Back Program gives you the unique opportunity to buy back missed Roll Call years. Missed Roll Call years since graduation are $100 per year. For additional information, call 404-385-4483 (GIVE) or email rollcall@alumni.gatech.edu.

We are looking forward to celebrating our 40th class reunion with you in the fall and hope you make plans to come back home!

Go Jackets!
