     Festivities kick off at 5 p.m. on opening day for the Class of 1957 observing its 50th class reunion.

     Current and retired SRU faculty and staff are invited to join alumni and the general public for the Musicians’ Concert Band at 8 p.m. performance in Miller Auditorium and the post-concert reception set for the Russell Wright Alumni House.
