2014 Nursing Alumni Homecoming Walk

Dear Nursing Alumni, Emeriti and Current Faculty, Students, and Friends,

Please join us for our 14th annual Nursing Alumni Homecoming Walk on Saturday, October 4, 2014. The Nursing Walk will start at 8:00 a.m. in front of the Nursing Building (with registration beginning at 7:30 a.m.). The walk will be a rather short one across and around campus, giving everyone an opportunity to see all that has changed on campus, including the addition of Centennial Hall, a new academic building.  

We will have a continental breakfast at 8:30 following the walk. With the breakfast, we will provide an update regarding recent events at the College and University and draw names for door prizes. We plan on finishing before 10:00 a.m. so that you may attend the Homecoming Parade.

Newly designed Carolina Blue College of Nursing and Health Sciences T-shirts, including youth sizes, are being ordered for the walk. To guarantee enough T-shirts, we encourage you to pre-register by September 18th using the attached form. At the same time you are completing the registration form, please consider making a donation to build up our Nursing Advancement Fund. Monies from this fund are used to support student and faculty initiatives, special projects, and immediate needs not covered by the University’s budget. Donations also can be made to new and existing scholarships for our students; to assist us in attracting and retaining doctorally prepared faculty; and to enhance our teaching facilities and clinical laboratory technology.

On Saturday, the Homecoming Parade begins at 10:00 a.m. on 1st Avenue (just past the Lake Street area). Then watch the 1:00 p.m. UW-Eau Claire Blugolds vs. UW-Platteville Pioneers football game at Carson Park.
