Black Alumni Reunion

Plans are well underway for a Black Alumni Reunion during Homecoming Weekend (October 25-28, 2018). And we want to see you there! Our goal is to get as many of our fellow alums together as possible and have the opportunity to visit, reminisce, and celebrate. After a wonderful Homecoming in 2017, we are once again excited to return to our Alma Mater, and we are thrilled to introduce plans for the 2018 Black Alumni Reunion. Below you will find information outlining the events for this reunion along with special initiatives we want to embark on. We are excited about this great time and are ready to welcome you back home.

Here is a special preview of events you will not want to miss.
