  • Alumni Awards Celebration,  Alumni Welcome and Conference Center (AWCC),  5 p.m., Friday, Oct. 17
  • Tour de Titan Bike Ride, AWCC, 11 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 18

“We are excited to show our alumni the new Welcome Center, their new home away from home on campus,” said UW Oshkosh Alumni Relations Director Christine Gantner. “My expectation is that we will get hundreds of alumni and community members returning to campus.”

The Tour de Titan Bike Ride will be led by this year by alumnus Christian Jensen ’07, of Green Bay, and members of myTEAM TRIUMPH-Wisconsin. Jensen will receive an Outstanding Young Alumni Award at the Friday celebration.
