The Cubs lost in Mesa, but University of Wisconsin-Platteville and our Arizona alumni were big winners as alumni events were held in Tucson on March 26 and Mesa on March 28. Both venues guests listened to the chancellor discuss the current state of our university and proposed plans—for both new buildings and educational opportunities. Steve Ramig, Executive Director of Development and Alumni Engagement, and his development team were also on hand.
The 26th Annual Leadership Awards Ceremony will be held on Sunday, April 23 from 2–4 p.m. in the Center for the Arts.
The Alumni Association board of directors will meet Saturday, April 29 from 9 a.m.–2 p.m. at Pioneer Farm, 29200 College Farm Road.
It is difficult to believe, but spring commencement is next month. The commencement ceremonies are Friday, May 12, at 7 p.m.–the School of Business and the School of Graduate Studies; Saturday, May 13 at 9 a.m.–College of Business, Industry, Life Science and Agriculture; 12:30 p.m.–College of Liberal Arts and Education; and 4 p.m.–College of Engineering, Mathematics and Science. All ceremonies will be held at Williams Fieldhouse.
