September 24-27 – Celebrating 125 years of Intercollegiate Football

HOMECOMING IS FOR ALL ALUMS!  Every alum is encouraged to return to campus as often as possible. Given any Homecoming, however, the Alumni Office places greater effort into the newest alumni class, the 10th reunion class, the 25th reunion class, the 40th reunion class, the 50th reunion class, and the Golden Alumni, any alum graduating more than 50 years ago.  This year the Class of 2015, the Class of 2005, the Class of 1990, the Class of 1975, the Class of 1965 and the years before, will be honored.  If you would like to assist in the efforts to connect with as many of your classmates as possible, please contact the Alumni Relations office at 319-385-6220.
