reunion-banner4May 24 – May 26, 2017

We promise alumni reunion will be a memorable time for all attendees. You’ll enjoy reconnecting with classmates, meeting students, faculty and staff, touring the impressive campus and seeing all of the changes to your alma mater and the Des Moines metropolitan area. Reflect with friends on the twists, turns and trips you’ve taken since your student days, too.

Whether you attended COMS, UOMHS or DMU … you can look back with pride at your education. But don’t limit yourself to just looking back: make plans now to come back!

The weekend includes a special medallion ceremony and reception, guided campus tours, a campus picnic, a student panel, and more.
