Golden Gaels Society

The Golden Gaels Society recognizes Iona alumni who graduated 50 years ago or more. This group is the cornerstone of our alumni family and we are proud to recognize and celebrate their importance to the Iona community. Currently, there are over 4,100 Golden Gaels made up of alumni from the Classes of 1948 through 1971. 

Each year, the newest members of the Golden Gaels Society receive a certificate and a pin during their 50th Reunion, or Golden Jubilee. Members of the class do not have to be present to become part of the Golden Gaels Society. Every person who graduated 50 or more years ago is automatically inducted each year.

Whether you've just been inducted, or you're a longtime Golden Gael, we are so excited to welcome you back to campus.  We encourage you to return each year to reminisce, reconnect, and celebrate your legacy as part of the Iona family.
