The Fifty Year Club’s (FYC) mission is to connect alumni and friends who share common memories and eras, to inform, educate, engage, and support Knox College to keep its history and its future alive.

Connecting Knox Through the FYC 
The FYC welcomes all who have attained 50 years since attending Knox College. A new class is inducted each year in October upon its 50th anniversary.

For more than 75 years, the Club has provided members with the opportunity to gather locally and across the country to connect with other alumni and with the College. Members gather for Reunions past the 50th at Homecoming and are invited to attend days of lifelong learning with a variety of College and alumni speakers. The Club also sends birthday postcards and two issues of the FYC Bulletin each year.

These member benefits and programs are supported by gifts and membership dues ($20 per year or $200 for a lifetime membership); they support the Club's programs, including publication of the Bulletin, meetings, and special events.

The FYC is located in Umbeck Science-Mathematics Center and shares its offices with Advancement and Alumni Engagement.
