Alumni Hall Reunion 2017

Sept. 15-16, 2017

If you lived in Alumni Hall in the years 1965 - 1970,  this “Remember When” Reunion is for YOU!
The Reunion focus for our era of 1965-1970 will allow for more fellowship and better opportunities to share memories and relive shared experiences. This focus will also enhance enjoyment of planned activities for Friday and Saturday, which physically limit the number of participants.   And we want to be sure to include spaces for spouses and significant others as well.
The “Remember When” Reunion will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of our graduation from Iowa State; will allow time to reconnect with men who lived in Alumni Hall from 1965 to 1970;  will offer select activities with limitations on attendance; and will allow time for fellowship to reconnect with those from our era to share memories and relive shared experiences among those we know so well.
