Alumni gather for WMU versus Wisconsin football

Aug. 8, 2000

KALAMAZOO -- The WMU Alumni Association has planned an exciting way for alumni throughout the Midwest to end the summer with a bang. The association will play host to a special get-togther 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 31, in Madison, Wis., before the football Broncos' season opener against the University of Wisconsin Badgers, the 2000 Rose Bowl champions.

The event will be held a few blocks from the Wisconsin stadium at Union South (227 N. Randall). It will include a complete tailgate dinner. And the alumni association has arranged to bring a little bit of campus to the event. Representatives from several WMU colleges will have visual displays set up for alumni and friends to view. They also will share what the future holds for their academic units, in terms of curricula as well as construction, and for the University as a whole.

Tickets are available for the alumni event only as well as for the event and football game. Prices vary depending on the package purchased and the attendant's age and Alumni Association membership status. The deadline for reservations is Friday, Aug. 18.

For more information, call Carol Conklin at the WMU Alumni Association, (616) 387-8777.
