Golden Eagles

American University's Golden Eagles represent alumni whose initial studies with American University culminated 50 or more years ago. Golden Eagles have developed a warm tradition of gathering annually to celebrate the induction of the newest class to the group, which is a shining example of the connections between long time alumni and current faculty, staff, students, and friends. Hosted by President Neil Kerwin, SPA/BA '71, and his wife Ann Kerwin, CAS/BA '71, the Golden Eagles Reunion Luncheon is one of the signature events of American University's All-American Weekend.

The Golden Eagles Luncheon is followed by a variety of programming throughout the next two days of All-American Weekend, which allows members of this honored group to remember, reconnect, and relate their stories to the generations of alumni and students who have followed in their footsteps.
