Golden Eagles



American University honors alumni who graduated from AU 50 or more years ago by recognizing them as Golden Eagles. Each fall, Golden Eagles gather during All-American Weekend to celebrate the induction of the newest class to join their distinguished group. This year, the Class of 1966 will reconnect on AU's campus to celebrate their 50th reunion and make new AU memories with their fellow Golden Eagles.
