School of Architecture Class of 1972 50th Reunion


We look forward to hosting our School's first ever 50th reunion celebration, and welcoming the Class of 1972 as Golden Terps.  

Below is a tentative schedule of events. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely to ensure the health and safety of our guests, and hope to have a confirmed list of events by the end of March.  

In the meantime, use this form to let us know your plans to attend and share memories of your time at Maryland. Contact Leia Droll ( with any questions or to update your contact information. 

For those traveling from out of the area:
Given the small size of our group, we are not able to hold rooms at the hotels near campus. We highly recommend that you reserve a hotel at your earliest convenience, as rooms sell out quickly during commencement periods.
