It all started with the Class of 1923...

Elder’s first graduating class consisted of six men and two women who will forever be remembered as the first members of an exceptionally loyal and supportive group of individuals called Elder Alumni. Today, one can find an Elder grad living in any of the 50 United States as well as in 22 foreign countries around the world!

This page contains a listing of those classes which gather on a regular basis. Whether it be monthly or quarterly meals or just getting together for drinks and camaraderie, the Elder Spirit remains alive and well within the alumni community.
