Alumni Reunion Weekend
ALUMNI REUNION WEEKEND - JUNE 6-8 - RELIVE YOUR SENIOR WEEK!
The Franklin Pierce University Alumni Relations Department and YOUR FPU Alumni Association have announced our "New and Improved" Alumni Reunion Weekend scheduled for June 6th-8th, 2014 and "HOMECOMING WEEKEND" scheduled for Mid-October, 2014.
We've heard from many of you that this has caused confusion, and we'd like to clarify some of the reasoning behind the switch. Due to hotels at max capacity and tricky weather the last few years, the Alumni Relations Department has worked with the Conference and Events Department to select the first weekend in June for Alumni Reunion Weekend. By utilizing the dorms, alumni and families will be able to affordably stay right on campus, and hopefully the spring weather will allow for warmer temperatures and a beautiful weekend on campus. Warmer weather will allow for traditions like "Oozeball" to return to Alumni Reunion Weekend as well. Our hope is that you will return to campus and relive your days at Franklin Pierce like it was your Senior Week all over again!
The Alumni Reunion Weekend Committee is hard at work planning the schedule for June, but right now it looks like Friday night will host anniversary class dinners around campus, followed by evening entertainment. Then Saturday will have a morning program, followed by an All Alumni Luncheon. In the afternoon there will be many outdoor activities before the big party under the tent. There will be dinner and dancing and a great time had by all. Then Sunday will close with a Farewell Brunch. For those alumni who enjoy Golf, you're encouraged to stick around for one additional day as our Annual Golf Tournament will now run on Monday, June 9, 2014.
Homecoming Weekend will take place on September 27, 2014, and a schedule of events will be out in the next few months. This day will focus around athletics, and current student programming, open to all alumni, parents, and families.
Get ready for some fun-filled, memorable times with all your fellow classmates when we all gather on campus once again to celebrate. Shortly, you will be receiving information on both events. Keep checking the Franklin Pierce Website, the Rocky the Raven facebook page and emails for additional information.
If you would like to submit your feedback, or are interested in becoming a Class Correspondent to assist in this year's planning, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or either of us directly.
We look forward to seeing everyone on campus in June AND October!
