UMBC celebrates its 50 years in style
Saturday, September 17, 2016 was a day to remember for any Retriever who made it to campus to join in the biggest celebration of black and gold pride ever.
Over 3,300 alumni, students, faculty and staff from across the campus community came together to attend the event – which included a puppy parade, storytelling, hands-on demonstrations and lectures across disciplines, athletics events, and a dazzling display of fireworks to cap it off. We wanted to share that day – including some of the best stories from faculty and alumni – with our readers.
