Celebrating 60 years of UNO graduates!

In June of 1962, 116 excited seniors were awarded their diplomas to become the first graduating class of the University of New Orleans. Six decades later, the University of New Orleans has grown, but one thing has not changed - our commitment to providing a high-quality and accessible education.

This commitment has enabled generations of hard-working, determined students to achieve their dreams, transform their lives, and make a positive impact in their local and global communities, with a UNO degree.

The Class of 2022 is no different. Like generations of Privateers before them, they are excited by a future filled with opportunity. The generosity and support of alumni and friends have played an integral part in our 60-year history, and now you can ensure the continued growth and success of the University. 

Help celebrate 60 years of UNO graduates with a gift to UNO First.
