Showcase Your Department to Pioneer Alumni & Friends at Forever Pioneer Weekend!

Jun 4, 2018 by Stephanie J Preciado

With the excitement of commencement upon us, we are reminded of how remarkable our students are and how much we have enjoyed being a part of their educational journey. This fall we will celebrate again and invite our graduates back to campus for Forever Pioneer Weekend, Oct. 19-21.

Anchored by the Distinguished Alumni Awards Gala, Golden Grad Celebration, Athletics Hall of Fame and Saturday’s University Showcase & Alumni reunions, Forever Pioneer Weekend is our opportunity to recognize, serve and engage our alumni and their families.

Do you have a SATURDAY showcase/event idea that will:

  • ATTRACT the attention of our alumni and inspire interest in revisiting the campus
  • INSPIRE by sharing exciting developments, research or interactive experiences
  • HIGHLIGHT a special occasion/anniversary
  • CONNECT alumni, students, faculty & staff to share success stories, network and learn from one another
  • PROVIDE professional development, learning and engagement opportunities to foster a new or deeper connection with the university

Once we hear from you, we will craft and promote the details for a spectacular showcase and reunion event for our alumni and the university community.

Audience:  Event is open to the entire university community & their guests
Submission Deadline:   June 15 PROPOSAL FORM

Hi Marnice! You will already be part of alumni once you graduate. If you want to access all the benefits and resources, you will need to fill out an Alumni Benefits Card which is available on the Alumni homepage (
