Special Weekend of Events Welcomes Alumni at Annual All Gaucho Reunion
From April 20-26, alumni old and new will gather at UCSB for the All Gaucho Reunion. A plethora of activities are on tap for the week, including several traditional reunions, the Alumni Association Awards Banquet, Gaucho Festival, Gaucho Gallup, and the Alumni Faculty and Staff Reception.
Reunions are scheduled for the classes of 1959, 1969, 1984, and 1999, as well as for the College of Engineering. The Riviera Reunion will honor graduates and friends of Santa Barbara State College and UC Santa Barbara College, and the Alumni Faculty and Staff Reception will recognize Gaucho alumni for their continuing commitment to UCSB.
Other events include the Alumni Vintners Wine Tasting, the 10th Annual Gaucho Golf Classic, an alumni softball tournament, the Recreational Sports Hall of Fame Induction, and a host of lectures and talks by accomplished alumni.
The Gaucho Gallop, featuring a 10K race and a 5K Fun Run/Walk, will take participants on a course alongside the ocean and past many campus landmarks. Canine friends are invited to participate in the pre-race Dioji Dog Dash and then hang out at the Dioji Doggie Lounge for the remainder of the event. The Finish Line Festival will feature music, vendor booths, pizza, an awards ceremony, and a raffle.
