Upcoming Events

Annual Alumni Weekend

We hope you will join the department for this "AE family reunion." At this time we intend to host our Annual Alumni Weekend in-person. The department will be monitoring developments in the status of guidelines for visitors on campus and will be prepared to move to a virtual weekend if new guidelines warrant. 

If you plan to attend any portion of the weekend festivities listed below, please RSVP so we can plan appropriately and communicate changes effectively.  We look forward to seeing you again.
