Enjoy a night to commemorate Alumni Park’s fifth anniversary. And honor the 11 new alumni featured in the park, some of whom will be in attendance.
This VIP reception, from 4:30 to 6 p.m., is for select alumni, donors, campus leaders, and friends. Highlights include hearing about the newly featured alumni — and meeting some of them — along with enjoying passed appetizers and desserts.
Afterward, continue the revelry during an open house for the community, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., in Alumni Park. This will be a wonderful opportunity to gather in celebration of an iconic campus destination and the newly inducted alumni who exemplify the Wisconsin Idea.
