TROY—Alumni and friends of Troy University will gather on the Troy Campus, March 25-27 for the University’s annual Spring Alumni Reunion weekend.

Alumni Affairs Director Faith Ward said the annual event provides alumni with the opportunity to reconnect with former classmates, as well as the University.

“Spring Reunion weekend is an important event in the life of Troy University,” Ward said. “We hope that all members of the TROY family will take advantage of this opportunity to take part in the fun activities we have planned and witness first-hand the tremendous growth that is taking place on campus.”

The highlight of the weekend will be the annual Alumni Reunion Dinner set for 6 p.m. on Saturday in the Trojan Center Ballrooms. The dinner will be preceded by a reception at 5:30 p.m. in the second floor lobby of the Trojan Center.

During the dinner, Silver and Golden Trojans, along with Lifetime Members of the University’s Alumni Association will be honored. In addition, Alumni Chapter awards will be presented and the University will honor 1947 alumnus and former TROY Trustee Dr. Harold R. Collins with the Distinguished Leadership Award.
