Alumni Events

Honors College students line up for the graduation ceremony with Associate Dean Emeriti Jane Baas in the centerWe are incredibly proud of the thousands of graduates of the Lee Honors College. Our students and staff are always delighted to meet alumni and learn about their many accomplishments.

In April 2015, 2016 and October 2017, we held all-Medallion Reunions, inviting the more than 400 alumni who have been Medallion Scholars in the past four decades. Beginning in October 2018, we plan to host a tent with games at the Homecoming tailgate open to all honors college alumni.

In July 2014, we hosted a reunion day for alumni who attended the honors college in the 1990s. These alumni and their families enjoyed a day touring new facilities on campus, including the Parkview College of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Oakland Drive College of Health and Human Services, visiting Eldridge residence hall, having lunch in Bigelow cafeteria, and having fun in the Student Recreation Center. We look forward to future alumni reunions, so please make sure we have your current contact info, so that we can invite you to events!
