During these three days, you can…

Reconnect with friends and meet successful alumni and celebrate the accomplishments of this year’s alumni award recipients at our Alumni Leaders Day recognition.

Return to the classroom during Friday University for lively classes led by favorite faculty.  One small registration fee covers a morning reception, two classes and lunch!

Interact with current students and get an inside look at life on campus with tours, including our new University Village residential facility.

Bring the whole family… Back to School Weekend offers activities for all ages, including college-bound teens, senior citizens and grandchildren.

Whether you are interested in a picnic on the lawn, networking with alumni and friends, an academic discussion or family-friendly activities, we will offer it! If you have not returned to campus for a while, we think you will be impressed!

More details about these and other alumni events will be available in May on our website:
