UMBC honored members of The 1966 Society on September 19 — the 45th anniversary of the university’s opening day in 1966 — at a dinner hosted by president Freeman A. Hrabowski III celebrating the commitment they’ve made to UMBC’s future through planned giving. The group met in the Albin O. Kuhn Library and enjoyed a “7th Floor Tour of UMBC,” along with dinner with Dr. Hrabowski and the chance to share memories of their time at UMBC.

“I love that they continue to engage with students,” said Kimberly Robinson, director of campaigns and donor relations. “The stories they told are so wonderful, and so similar to what people are celebrating about UMBC today, such as excellence in faculty teaching and innovation in the classroom. It really was great to hear.”

This 1966 Society dinner will be an annual event, so if you have named UMBC in your estate plans, please contact Robinson at Kim.Robinson@umbc.edu or 410-455-3700 so she can make sure you are invited to next year’s event!
