UI Alumni Reunion Weekend set for June 6-9
The University of Iowa Alumni Reunion Weekend, from June 6-9, marks the celebration
of several special events at the University of Iowa. First, the university
will honor the anniversary of the graduating classes of 1962, 1957, 1952 and
all years prior. Second, the university will honor the College of Public Healths
departments of biostatistics, epidemiology, and occupational and environmental
health, celebrating the 25th anniversary of their formation as academic units.
The weekend, themed Your past, your future, your university,
will include a full array of reunion activities that will allow alumni to
reconnect with the university, with classmates, and with the memories of their
days on campus.
The weekend begins with Alumni College 2002--a weekend full of educational
programs, tours, and hands-on projects. Campus tours will spotlight past,
present, and future building projects.
"This a great chance for alumni to chat with students back on campus
for summer session or stroll along the walkways by the Iowa River and enjoy
the beautiful UI campus," said Staci Valenta, assistant director of alumni
