California State University, Northridge went grand on Saturday, Oct. 13, as 6,000 Matadors returned to campus for the university’s 60th Anniversary Grand Reunion.
The main event of the day was the Grand Reunion Picnic — an afternoon celebration on the Oviatt Lawn in front of the iconic Delmar T. Oviatt Library where student performers entertained their fellow Matadors on stage and people enjoyed mini-reunions, campus tours, games, food trucks and more.
“The Grand Reunion was beyond expectation,” said Shellie Hadvina, assistant vice president, Alumni Relations and Annual Funds. “It was so incredible to see Matadors of all ages return to campus. We hope this event has brought them closer to CSUN today and for years to come.”
The day started with the Matador Fun Run 5K and led into the invite-only Founders’ Luncheon, where 1968 graduates and faculty and staff who began their service to CSUN were inducted into the university’s 50 Year Club.
After the Grand Reunion Picnic, some event-goers made their way to watch CSUN Men’s Soccer host Cal Poly, attended reunion gatherings for Journalism, University Student Union or the TAKE stage performance program or watched Moon River and the Music of Henry Mancini (hosted by Monica Mancini) at The Soraya.
This was CSUN’s largest reunion since the 50th Grand Reunion in 2008. Like at that event, a group photo was taken in front of the Oviatt Library, commemorating a spectacular day for all.
