Centennial Alumni Reception and Homecoming

It's the biggest Blugold bash of the year! UW-Eau Claire’s Centennial Alumni Reception on Sept. 30 and 2016 Homecoming festivities on Oct. 1 will take on a Centennial theme, bringing current students, faculty and staff, alumni and community members together to celebrate 100 years of Blugold history!

Centennial Alumni Reception

All Blugold alumni are invited to the Centennial Alumni Reception on Friday, Sept. 30, from 4:30-7:30 p.m. in the Ojibwe Room of the Davies Student Center. Plan now to visit campus and see what's new (believe us, there's a lot!), and then connect with fellow Blugolds at this special centennial reception.
