If winter weather is starting to wear on you, University of Wisconsin Oshkosh graduates are invited to warm up at alumni events this March in sunny Arizona and Florida.
“Each spring semester, we try to plan some fun alumni activities in warmer climates,” said UW Oshkosh Alumni Director Christine Gantner. “These events are designed to appeal to both alumni living in or visiting these states. They are a great way to catch up with fellow alumni in these areas and learn what is happening at your alma mater.”
Alumni will meet Chancellor Richard H. Wells and hear a campus update including progress on the new Alumni Welcome and Conference Center at the Florida receptions planned for March 18 and 19.
On Monday, March 18, alumni are invited to gather from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the Sara Bay Country Club in Sarasota, Fla. The event on Tuesday, March 19, which will be held at The Waterfront Inn in The Villages, also runs from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres and cash bar will be available at both events. Reserve a spot by March 11.
On Sunday, March 24, alumni can catch baseball fever at the UW Oshkosh Alumni Day at Milwaukee Brewers Spring Training at the Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix, Ariz. A tailgate buffet begins at 11:30 a.m., followed by the game at 1:05 p.m. The Brewers face the Colorado Rockies.
The ticket package includes an unlimited tailgate buffet in a private suite for $45 per person. Tickets will be distributed at the event. The cost for parking is $6 per car. Guests should look for the UW Oshkosh table as they approach the main gate at the stadium. Reservations are required by March 1.
