As IWU celebrates Titans Around the World at Homecoming this weekend, we will also honor our alumni who served worldwide as veterans and first-responders, including Captain Ryan A. Beaupre ’95. We will remember Ryan and all veterans and first-responders who have given their lives in the service of others and our country. Presenting the colors will be American Legion Color Guard Post 635 Normal and Post 56 from Bloomington. The ceremony will take place this Saturday, October 14th at 12:45 p.m., prior to the Homecoming Football game at Tucci Stadium and will include the National Anthem sung by Wayne Messmer ’72.  Classmates and friends can view the ceremony on streaming video live at https://portal.stretchinternet.com/iwu/.

My fondest memories are Tuesday studio dinners with Dr. Moham, late night Survey study sessions in the Ames reading room with Renee Cook and Susan Rapp (catered by McDonald’s), and of course the first week of freshman year when Sam Katz introduced me to one of my now best friends, Nicolette Varan!

There is less than 1 month until Homecoming 2017!

While counting down the days until we are all back on campus, let’s reminisce about the time we spent at IWU. My fondest memories from IWU are taking karate, being a part of the volleyball and water polo teams, and the friendships I’ve made and kept (shout out to my bestie, Matt Tannenbaum)! 

Would anyone like to share their favorite IWU memories? Comment below!

If you are still deciding on which events you want to attend during Homecoming, the International RSO Fair is highly recommended. It will be on Saturday (10/14) at the Hansen Student Center, Center Court from 11 am – 1 pm. Come learn more about our multicultural registered student organizations and enjoy activities and musical performances. A light lunch will be provided, so please register either online or by phone by 10/8!

Laurie Diekhoff departed from IWU after 10 years at the Hart Career Center.

Laurie told her colleagues, “I spent 10 great years at the Career Center, enjoying my work, my colleagues, and the many relationships I have made on campus and in the community as a result of this position. Assisting students with their career development plans, helping employers fulfill their hiring needs, developing new programs, and contributing to the ongoing success of the Hart Career Center has been quite rewarding!”

We wish Laurie the best in her new adventure.
