Since the first commencement 50 years ago, more than 150,000 students have earned undergraduate and graduate degrees in a broad range of disciplines. The university that took shape on an abandoned World War II airbase has expanded to include six modern campuses arrayed along a 100-mile stretch of Florida’s coastline. Today’s Florida Atlantic University is a vibrant center of education, research and public service, with an annual economic impact of $6.3 billion.
In 1965 Florida Atlantic University celebrated its first graduation. In 2015 FAU and the FAU Alumni Association honored these first graduates by inducting them into the inaugural class of the Majestic Owls Society. Each year the members of another class, reaching this milestone of the 50th anniversary since their graduation, will be inducted into the Society. Special events, including an Induction Ceremony, will encourage members to renew old friendships and strengthen ties with their alma mater.
