The class of 1966 celebrated their 50 year reunion with lunch hosted by Dr. Kent, Dean of the OSU College of Medicine and Dr. Mary Pat Borgess, President of the Medical Alumni Society. Classmates were presented with medallions and memory books to recognize their post-graduation accomplishments and lots of fun memories were shared about their time as medical students. 

The Medical Heritage Center Open House offered alums a glimpse into the past, highlighting medical artifacts, books, and photographs of the College of Medicine over the years. 

To cap off the day, Nearly 200 alumni and guests gathered Friday evening for the first ever College of Medicine Celebration – featuring a presentation from Dr. Capers about the College of Medicine successes throughout the years followed by an All-Class Social where alumni mingled with each other and current students. Live music was provided by current students in the College of Medicine Orchestra.
