Convocation has been organising these 50th Anniversary Reunion Luncheons since 1985, and they have become a key annual event in the UWA Calendar. Guests are graduates from all faculties, which bring together a wonderful mix of personalities and life experiences. The 50th Reunions are always well attended, with many graduates flying over from interstate and overseas locations for the event. The Reunion will also be attended by Convocation Council members, University officials, graduates from earlier years, some of whom attended or were unable to attend the reunion for the year of their graduation.
Each year, Convocation produces a 50th Reunion booklet, which contains a collection of brief biographical profiles for each graduate of that year. These booklets have proven to be a source of considerable interest and a pleasure to read, and also become invaluable historical records for the many and varied contributions that UWA graduates have made throughout their lives.
Each year, the 50th Reunion is organised by a committee of volunteers.

Beautiful decorations, old exam papers provided as place mats, 1960s memorabilia and background music, as well as Barbara Streisand's hit song "The Way We Were" all helped set the scene for the 50th reunion.
