Celebrate good times at Homecoming Reunion 2002

University of Iowa alumni celebrating their class reunions will have a full slate of activities to enjoy Oct. 4-5 at Homecoming Reunion 2002.

The UI is hosting reunions for the classes of 1977, 1982 and 1992, along with the College of Law class of 1972, College of Pharmacy classes of 1972 and 1997, and Tippie College of Business class of 1997.

Open houses, college events, reunion class dinners and pre-game tailgates are just some of the activities that alumni will participate in during Homecoming Reunion 2002. "Homecoming Reunion Weekend offers a great opportunity for all alumni to come back to campus to celebrate and reconnect with the UI, with classmates they haven't seen in a while, and with the memories of good times at Iowa," said Staci Valenta, the Alumni Association's reunion director.

Alumni can enjoy food, refreshments, games and giveaways at the Homecoming Celebration Tent located on the corner of Dubuque and Washington streets from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 4 before the Homecoming Parade though downtown Iowa City.

All alumni are invited to stop by the Alumni Association Homecoming Tent located in Hawkeye Rally Alley on the Klotz Tennis Courts south of Kinnick Stadium starting at 9 a.m. before the Iowa/Purdue football game on Saturday, October 5, scheduled for a 11:10 a.m. kick-off. Most other game-day tailgates for alums of individual UI colleges will begin two to three hours prior to kickoff.
