Class of 1965 gathers for 50th reunion

After working for nearly two years to plan the reunion under the guidance of Karen Harrison and Kay Slattery, the class of 1965 gathered to celebrate its 50th reunion in May. During a luncheon in their honor at the School of Nursing, class members enjoyed visiting with Interim Dean Donna S. Havens and engaging with student ambassadors.

Class members were forward thinking in their conversations, asking Dr. Havens about the state of the School and her goals for its future. Their discussions with the student ambassadors centered on how nursing students learn today.

While at the School, the class of 1965 toured the Biobehavioral Laboratory, where they heard about the variety of biological and behavioral measuring techniques used by the School’s nurse scientists. The weekend was also full of activities sponsored by the General Alumni Association, including the presentation of commemorative medallions to the UNC class of 1965.
