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!
