Alumni Spring into Middle72“The main reason for Alumni Spring Weekend is to have alumni, friends and families return to campus and see the tremendous growth of the university in the past several years,” Wydra said.

“We know that during homecoming time can be limited so, we wanted to have a spring event where you could get to see different buildings, programs and take a tour to see everything new on campus,” he added.
