Tonight & Saturday: It’s all about alumni
Starting tonight and continuing Saturday afternoon, alumni rule at UW-Parkside. Stop by the Racine Marriott tonight for an evening of networking and come to the SAC Saturday for great basketball and great fun.
Today at 5 p.m., alumni and friends can join the after-work scene for mingling and networking at the third of the UW-Parkside Alumni Association's popular new "Alumni After Hours" gatherings this time in the 20 & Oakes Room at the Racine Marriott. Included on the agenda are door prizes, complimentary appetizers and beverages offered at happy-hour prices.

Then it's family, fun, and basketball during "Alumni Day at the Basketball Games" Saturday, Feb. 4, at the Sports and Activity Center.
