It's hard to believe that in a couple of months, we will gather the Class of 1968 for our 50-year reunion! The Reunion Committee is busy planning some great celebrations of this accomplishment, and we hope you'll be here to join in the fun!

Please make sure that we can reach you! We're updating our records through the UA Alumni Association, and we'll post everyone's email addresses on the Class of 1968 page of Bearalums.com. If you've moved, or if you're not sure if we have your most current home address, phone number, and email address, please visit the Directory page and follow instructions there.

We'd like to send a special "Thank you!" to Bonnie Schoenborn Dietrich, who designed the Class of 1968 50-Year reunion logo that you see to the left, and at the top of each page of the website. She even incorporated the spirit of The City of Upper Arlington's Centennial Celebration. In 2018, UA will celebrate its 100th birthday, having been founded in 1918.

Please visit this website often for more information and details about our upcoming class reunion!

    

The Norwester is right here online!

Fifty years is a long time, and it's a challenge to remember everyone from our class. You can always browse through your Norwester for a quick name review, but what if you can't find your yearbook, or it has been lost along the way?

The Upper Arlington Library is here to help! The wonderful people at the library, in conjunction with The Upper Arlington Alumni Association, have scanned every Norwester yearbook, and the yearbooks are available for anyone to view online.

If you don't have your 1968 yearbook, but you would like to review the names and faces of your classmates before the reunion, you can access our 1968 yearbook here.
