Who are the Golden Knights?

Golden Knights are UB alumni celebrating 50 years since graduation. Each year, UB salutes these remarkable men and women with special honors during commencement ceremonies. Wearing gold academic robes, the Golden Knights lead the graduating class into commencement. Following commencement ceremonies, Golden Knights are recognized by the President in a private reception on campus. The Golden Knights luncheon with President and Mrs. Salonen will be held in the Mr. and Mrs. Henry B. duPont III Tower Room on campus.
