Guests enjoy lunch, libations and a live DJ while playing games and mingling with classmates, Nevada Alumni Council members, chapter representatives and each other. Grad Cel is the first step in to staying connected to your alma mater after graduation. Welcome to the Pack!

  • Homecoming

It’s a tradition that brings back memories for our Pack of time spent in dorm rooms, long nights studying in Getchell Library, playing Frisbee on the Quad or listening to bands in the Manzanita Bowl. Homecoming is a time to connect with students and reconnect with your alma mater. We can’t wait to welcome you home!
