The University of Minnesota, Morris will host the West Central School of Agriculture (WCSA) All-School Reunion on Saturday, July 19. The reunion is an annual event on the Morris campus, the former home of the WCSA. It is a cherished tradition that provides opportunities for WCSA “Aggies” to share memories, reunite with friends, and enjoy the company of fellow alumni.

“This event is always very well attended, and I have come to recognize that ‘Aggies’ have remained wonderfully loyal to their school and to one another,” says Carla Riley ’85, director of external relations.

The day’s festivities will begin with registration and brunch in the Student Center, followed by the annual business meeting. There will be a dedication of the Welcome Center’s (Engineering Building’s) Legacy Courtyard and its new sculpture in the afternoon, followed by light refreshments. Alumni will have an opportunity to visit the WCSA Alumni Garden at their leisure.
