Volunteer at the inaugural Parade of Classes at Reunion Weekend

Reunion weekend is rapidly approaching - September 17 to 21 - and there could be up to 1,000 alumni and guests on campus! The Alumni Office is seeking volunteers for the inaugural Parade of Classes on the morning of Saturday, Sept. 20. Class photos will be taken on the steps on both sides of Memorial, then classes will move directly to line up for the parade from Ankeny to Cordiner Hall.

"The Wa-Hi Marching Band has been recruited to lead the parade, golf carts have been reserved for the Fifty Plus reunion classes - what we could really use is some help wrangling people," says Jennifer Northam, assistant director of alumni relations. She is recruiting volunteers to assist in directing classes to the parade staging area around the perimeter of Ankeny Field. Attendance at a short meeting the week before the reunion would be required, and parade duty would begin at 9 a.m. on Sept. 20 until all classes enter Cordiner Hall for Reunion Convocation at 11 a.m.
