Alumni, families invited to Day @ Basketball Feb 2
The University of Wisconsin-Parkside Alumni Association invites university graduates and their families to the popular Alumni Day at the Basketball Games Saturday, Feb. 2. Sponsored by Liberty Mutual Insurance, this event gives alumni the chance to meet Chancellor Debbie Ford, enjoy a tailgate lunch, win prizes, and cheer for the Rangers as they face the University of Indianapolis. It is held in the new Strength and Conditioning Center Lounge of the Sports & Activity Center at Highways E and JR in Kenosha.
"This is a chance for all alumni, those who are current with the campus and those who have been away for a while, to see the growth and how the university has changed for the better," said UW-Parkside Alumni Association President Jim Kramer. "The Strength and Conditioning Center Lounge is a good example of that growth and positive change, and it will be filled with food, family activities, and fun that day. And, of course, you'll see the best NCAA Division 2 basketball in the country!"
The Strength and Conditioning Center Lounge doors open at noon. UW-Parkside alumni and families who register in advance are admitted to the event and the basketball games free. Enjoy tasty snacks and a cash bar. At 12:30 p.m., Chancellor Ford welcomes alumni and UW-Parkside men's basketball coach Luke Reigel immediately follows Ford for a chalk talk. UW-Parkside women's basketball coach Jenny Knight-Kenesie conducts a chalk talk at halftime of the men's game. A tailgate lunch is served from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
Throughout the day, kids can enjoy fun activities with Ranger Bear and there are prize drawings, a 50-50 raffle, and more. The women's game against Indianapolis starts at 1 p.m. and the men face the Greyhounds at 3 p.m.
