Class of 1969


Combined Celebration in May 2021!

We will conduct a combined celebration of the Classes of 1970 and 1971 on the weekend of May 7-8, 2021 on our beautiful Greeneville campus. You will want to reserve the weekend to experience this once in a lifetime event!


Goal Met: $25,000

The College that you attended has seen many new improvements over the past years, including advancing to University status! Yet still has the landmarks and atmosphere that you all remember and cherish as an important part of your lives. We are excited to have you all come together, reconnect and celebrate!

On Friday, May 7th you will be able to open your school records and tour our beautiful campus. A dinner and medallion ceremony will take place in the beautiful Brotherton Boardroom in the Meen Center on campus on Friday night. On Saturday morning a breakfast will kick off the morning activities followed by the Golden Pioneers joining the May 2021 graduates in the Commencement ceremony. The weekend events will conclude with a casual lunch immediately after the Commencement ceremony.

Hotel rooms have been reserved at the General Morgan Inn, (423) 787-1000, for the Tusculum University 50th class reunion, early reservations are encouraged.

A letter and registration has been mailed to personally invite you to the festivities. Online registration is provided through the link below.

Even if you didn’t graduate in 1970 or 1971, but did attend Tusculum anytime from 1966-1971, we would love to have you participate.

The committee would like to ask you to consider giving a gift to the Class of 1970 and 1971 Endowed Memorial Scholarship in honor of your classmates. Gifts from the Class of 2021 (Residential and GPS), combined with our monetary contribution would be presented to the University President, Dr. Scott Hummel, at the May commencement.
