Event Description - Alumni Founders Weekend 2013

Welcome to the Alumni Founders Weekend Hub!

Alumni Founders Weekend is more than just class reunions —

It is the perfect time for Bulldogs of all breeds and their pups to connect with each other and some of the people who make Redlands special. Read through the whole brochure so you can plan a memorable weekend for you and your family.

Consider exploring the influence of the Chinese economy on the world with Walter Hutchens, the Hunsaker Professor of Global Business. Later, learn how to make beer from Senior Lecturer in Chemistry Candy Glendening or to express yourself when in the spotlight from Professor of Theater Arts Chris Beach.

For pure fun, hang out at the Rockin’ the “R” picnic lunch and sway to the sweet sounds of the Buffalo Blues Band, featuring Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences Kathy Ogren on vocals. Later, share a toast with Bill Lowman ’70, Director of the Salzburg Program, or your fellow School of Business alumni at the Alumni Association Biergarten.

End the day by celebrating the centennial of the “R” on the mountain, chat with President and Mrs. Kuncl, and gaze upon the illuminated Emblem that Shines Afar from the observatory deck atop Appleton Hall.

Don’t miss out on the fun. Register today!

Och Tamale!
