'Alumni At Last' Celebration Set For April 27

The University of Iowa Alumni Association (UIAA) in cooperation with the University of Iowa Book Store (UIBS) will provide a one-stop-shop for graduating students at the "Alumni at Last" celebration, which will be held from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Tuesday, April 27, on the lower level/ground floor of the Iowa Memorial Union.

The UIBS will take cap and gown orders, and the Office of Admissions will also answer any last-minute questions for graduates. The UIAA will offer information about class rings, diploma frames and graduation announcements. In addition future graduates can join the UIAA or Alumni Seeking Iowa Students (ASIST), as well as visit with Career Services and Alumni Career Exchange staff about job placement and interviewing.

The first 400 attendees will receive an Iowa Alumni umbrella from the Alumni Association. Participants may also enter to win door prizes at the event, including a Homecoming 2004 ticket and hotel package.

Any student who is graduating is welcome to attend. For additional information or questions, contact Cindy Meis, assistant director of programs at the UIAA, at 319-335-3854. For more details, see the UIAA website at:
