The curtain has closed on “Puttin’ on the ‘Berg,” Alumni Weekend 2017. Nearly 500 alumni and guests – the most in recent years -- returned to campus last weekend to experience “everything old is new again.”
“We had great participation from reunion classes and those who continue to come back year after year after year,” said Ashley Helmstetter, executive director of Alumni Engagement and Major Gifts. “We are always so happy to see them, but it warms my heart to welcome other alumni who are not in reunion classes returning in greater numbers each year.”
