IU East alumni and community are invited to Reconnect 2012

April 24, 2012 |

The Indiana University East Alumni Association invites alumni back to campus for a fun and innovative event, “Reconnect 2012,” from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, in the Graf Center in Springwood Hall.

Alumni will learn about the IU East campus today, meet with students, and catch up with professors and classmates.

IU East Alumni Association Board President Abby Clapp said, “As alumni board president, I am excited to invite not only alumni back to campus, but also the community. Come back to campus to see all the changes, reconnect with some old faces and meet new ones!”

The program includes IU East 2012 “Our Campus Today” and a tour of the campus led by Student Ambassadors. Participants will visit Main Street to learn about new academic programs, including graduate programs, hear about Alumni Legacy Scholarship programs and visit with long-time faculty members.

Participants can also talk with Campus Life and Athletics to get a view of what students do outside the classroom on campus and hear from student-athletes about the rapidly growing sports programs. Alumni can also connect IU East students with their workplace through internships and other creative experiential learning opportunities.

The program concludes with lunch and a student panel for alumni and students to have further interaction and discussion.

Attendees will also receive an IU East t-shirt and other IU East items, as well as door prizes.
