Alums Return for A Weekend of Discovery at UWG

Thursday, April 3, 2014

The University of West Georgia is gearing up for the 2014 “Went West” Alumni Weekend on April 10-13. The event, themed “A Weekend of Discovery,” is filled with several events per day to remind alumni of why they “Went West.”

Events will allow alumni to reconnect with classmates, explore new developments on campus and introduce family members to the university. The weekend kicks off with Run for UWG Thursday, April 10 at 6 p.m., and it will conclude with the College of Education Convocation Sunday, April 13, 2014 at 2 p.m.

Alumni will also have an opportunity to preview the UWG football team at the spring scrimmage and enjoy the alumni tailgate on Friday. Other highlights of the weekend include a decade-by-decade lunch featuring UWG President Kyle Marrero as the keynote speaker, and the “Evening with the Stars” Gala, which celebrates the accomplishments of UWG alumni.

Registration for both free and paid events is required. The deadline to register is Wednesday, April 9, 2014. For event details or to register, visit westga.edu/alumni/rsvp.
