Classes of 1972 Memory Book
The Memory Book is our reunion gift to you. It is a professionally bound book of memories and photos from your time at DU, HU or WMC/MCP, as well as a collection of narratives, contact information and photographs submitted by you and your classmates. Think of it as an updated version of your 1972 yearbook! Everyone who submits an entry will receive a Memory Book at Alumni Weekend. And if you can’t make it to Alumni Weekend, a copy will be mailed to you in June.
Submit your Memory Book entry by Friday, March 4. Looking for inspiration? Check out last year’s Classes of 1971 Memory Book. Contact information has been removed from the book to protect privacy.
