Alumni Weekend wows with full lineup of events

Have you ever thought to yourself, “Now is the time to make lasting memories?” This weekend may be your chance.

Augusta University will host Alumni Weekend from April 28-30, celebrating all things Augusta and welcoming back to campus generations of proud alumni, family and friends. In addition to honoring the university’s Distinguished Alumni, Alumni Weekend provides round-the-clock fun and engagement for hometown Augustans and visitors alike in the form of dozens of events hosted by the university’s nine colleges.

In addition to specific college events, Alumni Weekend attendees will be treated to a university tour of the Summerville and Health Sciences campuses during a free “Campus Discovery Tour” on Saturday (9:30-11 a.m.), followed by a free, old-fashioned backyard cookout — the annual President’s Cookout — at historic Twin Gables from noon to 2 p.m. Parking will be available at Woodlawn United Methodist Church on Walton Way.

Afterward, round out your weekend with the All Alumni After-Hours party at the Augusta Marriott Oglethorpe Ballroom at 9 p.m.

And if you still have a little party left in you, join keynote speaker and 2016 Olympic marathoner Pardon Ndhlovu for the Alumni Weekend Farewell Brunch on Sunday (11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.) at the Legends Club. Ndhlovu, a James M. Hull College of Business graduate, placed 41st in the 2016 Rio Olympics. Learn more about his journey here.

During brunch, the university’s 2017 Jag20 award recipients will be honored for their outstanding achievements.

The cost to attend the Alumni Weekend Farewell Brunch is $55 per person. Dress is business casual.
