50th Anniversary of Nurse Anesthesia
For the first time, the Alumni Office is starting the tradition of highlighting one of our five graduate programs individually during the Alumni Reunion Weekend. The Nurse Anesthesia program will reach its 50th year in existence in 2020, so it only makes sense to invite NA alumni back to Columbia to help celebrate this momentous milestone! Join us for a casual reception at 701 Whaley on Friday night during Alumni Reunion Weekend to reconnect with old classmates and colleagues, as well as meet those who graduated from the program when it was a part of Richland Memorial Hospital.

Class Reunion Challenge
It's back better than ever! The MD Class Reunion Challenge will launch after the New Year, and give those celebrating a milestone reunion a chance to bring home one (or all four) coveted awards and have the ultimate bragging rights for the next year.
- Top Docs Award – awarded to the class that contributes more than any other reunion class during
the fiscal year of their reunion. It all counts – gifts, pledges, and bequests made
to the UofSC School of Medicine Columbia.
- Golden Piggy Bank Award – awarded to the class that has the highest percentage of giving during the fiscal
year of their reunion. Same as above – everything counts!
- Golden Gift Award – awarded to the class that has the greatest number of gifts during the fiscal year
of their reunion. Whether it’s $1, $50 or $500, we are looking for as many gifts as
possible, regardless of the amount.
- Golden Stethoscope Award – awarded to the class that has the highest percentage of attendance at the Alumni
Are you celebrating a class reunion and want to see your class win?
