Golden Celebration at Homecoming 2021

Join Classmates in River Forest, Friday-Sunday, October 15-17

Golden Celebration is Concordia-Chicago’s annual celebration for alumni celebrating 50 years or more since graduation. This year’s gathering will take place – along with Cougars of every generation – during Homecoming 2021. We hope you will plan now to join us for some or all of the festivities.

Our plan reflects what we know today, but the University remains diligent in our understanding that the COVID-19 situation is ever changing. Complete schedule of events, registration and up-to-date information is available at CUChicago.edu/Homecoming.
