Event Image Alumni Weekend (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

*WU Campus

This year ALL alumni -- from all WU schools and generations -- are invited to Alumni Weekend. And we invite YOU to join us not only in helping to welcome alumni home to Willamette, but also by participating in the festivities. Alumni Weekend is a celebration of the WU community, and we hope that you will contribute to creating a festive atmosphere on campus and share in the experience.

Hundreds of Willamette alumni will return to campus to remember and celebrate their undergraduate experience at this incredible annual event. Ten classes (1964, '69, '74, '79, '84, '89, '94, '99, '04, '09) will be celebrating their reunion this year, but all Willamette alumni are welcome to revisit their old stomping grounds and fond memories this fall.

Beyond giving alumni an opportunity to reconnect with old friends, Alumni Weekend will boast a plethora of fun activities - including the Bearcats' homecoming football game, class dinners and much more! This is the premier event of the year, so don't miss it!

This panel of Willamette faculty, who study and visit Asia, will offer observations of key trends of change in Asia and their broader implications. Panelists: - Yan Liang, Associate Professor of Economics - Ron Loftus, Professor of Japanese Language and East Asian History - Jim Nafziger, Thomas B.
