GOLD Standard

You’re a GOLD. I’m a GOLD. We’re all GOLDs!

As an alumnus/a, you have probably seen emails about GOLDs or the GOLD Standard. So, what is a GOLD?

As an alumnus/a, you have probably seen emails about GOLDs or The GOLD Standard. So, what is a GOLD? GOLD stands for Graduates of the Last Decade, and includes just that: the last decade of Ursinus graduates. Being a GOLD makes you a unique kind of alumna/us. GOLDs are the ones furthering their educations in graduate school, or just beginning their careers all over the country. GOLDs are the ones that show up in full force to Homecoming, or share apartments with their UC roommates. GOLDs are extremely important to the Ursinus community, both in their engagement with the school and impact on the world after graduation. There is even a GOLD Council, with multiple committees for outreach, events and philanthropy, which works to engage the GOLD population. GOLDs are special—be proud to be GOLD!
