Celebrating Eric Hoiberg


We hope to see you on Oct. 7 as those of us fortunate enough to have worked with Eric Hoiberg in PSA drag him out of his all-too-comfortable retirement to acknowledge his considerable achievements. With a nod to the annual PSA potlucks that he and Karen hosted, we plan to gather during this fall’s Bacon Expo to reconnect with friends and classmates, embarrass Eric as we sing his many praises, and, well, eat some bacon!

Here are some items to consider: The event will take place during the Bacon Expo at the Hansen Center in Ames.

  • Your $10 registration fee will include admission to the event and all the bacon you can eat. Soft drinks are a la carte.
  • We are looking for stories and anecdotes about your experiences with Eric, as well as photos of Eric and his students from back in the day. If you have any to share, send them to Don’t send anything you aren’t willing to have posted publicly.
  • Like our Facebook page Honoring Hoiberg: Celebrating a Distinguished Career. Event updates will be posted there, and it also be a good forum in which to connect with other PSA alumni.
  • As an aside to the event, we are raising money to add to the Eric O. Hoiberg Scholarship for Public Service and Administration. You may give online at:
  • For those who are interested, there will be an informal golf outing on Friday, Oct. 6.
  • There will be a hog-calling contest…

Register online by Oct. 3. Questions can be directed to
