Equestrian Alumni Reunion

Friday Feb 21, 2020 - Feb 23, 2020 12:00 PM

EQS Alumni - Join us for Equestrian Alumni Weekend!

Follow us on Facebook for live updates and more!

Come home to The Woods for an Alumni Weekend dedicated to you!

Dear EQS Alumni,

Following Alumni Weekend planning last year, the Office of Advancement learned that our EQS alumni would love to come back for it in April, but can’t because late spring is such a busy month for many of you. This year, we in University Advancement and the EQS faculty chair/faculty have designed an EQS Alumni Reunion specifically for you, in February!

We want it to be special. We want it to be designed specifically for you. As WWU celebrates our 150th birthday in 2020, we are unveiling programs and events we hope will re-engage our alumni.

My vision is that EQS Reunion becomes an annual event you can look forward to. I hope you will join us and be a part of this new endeavor.

So, please come home to The Woods! We have missed you.

Jeneva Pace
Alumni Engagement Coordinator
