Class of 1990 Spring 2018 Letter

Spring 2018

Greetings Class of ’90,

Recall the years 1986-1990? Fast forward to 2018, many of us have reached that milestone 50th birthday, for others it’s still approaching, but have no fear, it feels pretty good. Entering a new decade is a turning point – just like starting college. I’m finding myself to have a new attitude and closer feeling of self-actualization (my Maslow/Psychology major reference here) that comes with age and a new chapter of life. There is an overflowing feeling of gratitude for my Luther years and all of you. What a firm foundation that campus, those halls, those fields, that town…gave all of us. I hope you are connected and stay connected to Luther College and Decorah; if you’re not please join us – it’s never too late.

I invite you to visit Luther/Decorah, attend an alumni gathering near you, follow Class of ’90 on Facebook, send in your personal updates via email, attend the Adult Dorian Retreat this summer and by all means – support the Luther Fund. Your money goes to work right away providing a smörgasbord of needs for students.

There is always something going on at Luther! Visit to read all about it.

Decorah is a busy place! Check out these upcoming events:

• Oneota Film Festival, April 19-22,

• Nordic Fest, July 26-28, Nordic Fest can be a good substitute if you can’t attend Luther Homecoming, October 26-28, 2018.

There are TWO awesome breweries in Decorah! Toppling Goliath Brewing Co., and Pulpit Rock Brewing Co.,, have made Decorah a beer tourism destination!

Be sure to check out for area hotels, B&Bs, coffee shops, restaurants and shopping. Downtown Decorah is abuzz with activity!

If you are unable to journey to Decorah check out the list of alumni events. Many events are held throughout the region for alumni, parents, and friends of Luther College. Information can be found at Contact the Alumni Office at 563-387-1861 with questions about alumni events or tours.

As we say farewell to the winter of 2017/18, let us look to the spring with a renewed sense of warmth in the season. Cherish your Luther connections and always feel free to share, visit, reach out – our Luther years provided a strong and solid foundation.

You can be a part of continuing to provide a strong and solid foundation, too. Make a gift today by using the attached form and the reusable envelope or by visiting

Soli Deo Gloria,

Sarah (Peterson) Thomson
