Alumni Reunion

Save the Date: September 22-24, 2017 

All of our alumni are welcomed to a full weekend of celebrations! We will have times for you to visit with old and new friends, activities, tours, and much more. We will have highlighted events for the classes of 1967, 1977, & 1992, like our special re-graduation of the 50th anniversary class.
