Congratulations to the Golden Grads Class of 2022!

It has been 50 years since you graduated from the University of Saskatchewan in 1972 which earns you the title of University of Saskatchewan Golden Grad! Congratulations on reaching this special milestone.  

It probably seems like yesterday you received your degree. Your life has taken you many places since you left campus, but we hope your memories of the University of Saskatchewan are just as vivid as they were all those years ago. This is a special time to honour you and all you’ve accomplished. Alumni, like you, have shaped our communities, our country and our world. We couldn’t be more proud to call you one of our 169,000 alumni.  

On November 9, we recognized the Golden Grads Class of 2022 with an online celebration including conversations with Golden Grads, Memory Lane, the Honour Roll, and a message from Chancellor Grit McCreath.



We caught up with two members of this year's class of Golden Grads, Gord Haddock (BComm'72) and the Hon. Lynda Haverstock (BEd'72, PGD'75, MEd'77, PhD'85), to reminisce about their time on campus at USask and what it means to them 50 years later.


The year was 1972... The Godfather hit theatres to record crowds, The Guess Who recorded Running Back to Saskatoon, gas was only 10 cents a litre and you graduated from the University of Saskatchewan!



Golden Grads Celebration

 Wednesday, November 9, 2022

This year over three hundred 1972 grads took part in the online event. All Golden Grads received a pin and parchment to commemorate this important milestone.
