2700 University Ave.
Alumni House Dedication
Ribbon cutting at 2 p.m.
Reception to follow
With more than 67,000 Drake alumni worldwide, the establishment of an Alumni House has been on the wish list for Drake’s Office of Alumni and Development for many years.
“Drake alumni have long needed a place to call their own in the heart of campus,” says John Smith, AS’92, GR‘00, vice president for alumni and development. “The newly established Alumni House will create that place and bring new life to the experience our alumni have when they come back home to Drake University.”
The Drake University Alumni House officially opened its doors in January. It has already served a variety of purposes: a primary point of contact for all visiting alumni; a support for relationship building among development staff; a home to the alumni relations staff; and a gathering place for receptions and other special events for alumni, the campus, and the community.
Join us the Saturday afternoon of Relays Weekend for the official dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony. A reception will follow. Visit our Alumni House webpage for history on the house.
