At the 2003 Alumni Reunion June 5-8, the University of Iowa Alumni Association will honor the anniversary of the graduating classes of 1963, 1958, 1953 and all years prior, in addition to the Carver College of Medicine Classes of 1947 and 1948.

The reunion begins on Thursday, June 5 with Alumni College 2003, an array of educational programs, tours, and hands-on projects. On the evening of Friday, June 6, classmates can reacquaint themselves at the All-Class Banquet, where they will hear from UI President David Skorton and witness the inaugural induction into the Circle of Gold for the class of 1953.

Events for Saturday, June 7 include the All-Alumni Luncheon and the 2003 UI Alumni Association's Distinguished Alumni Awards presentation. Numerous collegiate activities are slated throughout the weekend, including breakfasts with the college deans, tours, and reunion dinners.

At the Sunday morning breakfast June 8, friends will bid farewell and view "Reunion Recap," a highlight of photos taken throughout the weekend.

"We invite you to join us in Iowa City to celebrate this momentous occasion that will allow you to reconnect with the university, with classmates, and with the memories of your days on campus," said Staci Valenta, reunion coordinator and assistant director of alumni programs.
