Default UNI Central Iowa Alumni Club

I am excited to announce the formation of the UNI Central Iowa Alumni Club!

The club is dedicated to University of Northern Iowa alumni who live and work in Central Iowa who wish to network with other alumni while supporting and representing UNI through activities, events, volunteerism, advocacy and engagement.

Plans are in the works for 3-4 larger annual events. We will also organize smaller activities around the metro area periodically, including game watches.

In addition to email communications from the Alumni Association, you can follow us on our Facebook page: Click here

If you are in Central Iowa and desire to provide your suggestions, or get involved, please feel free to PM me.

Our next events are this Saturday to watch our #10 Panthers take on the #11 WSU Shockers!

Due to the response seen at our last game watch, we have reserved 2 locations for this game. Both will have limited appitizers provided by the Alumni Association.
Johnston: Okoboji Grill* - 8481 Birchwood Court
Downtown: Exile Brewing, Beer Hall - 1514 Walnut Street

*Okoboji is providing a 20% discount on all appitizers ordered.

Same thing. The board decided Central Iowa was more inclusive. We are still working on the logo.

On behalf of the UNI Central Iowa Alumni Club, thank you to all of those who attended our game watches yesterday. Although the result wasn't what we desired, we considered our events to be successful. The Okoboji bar area was overflowing into the dinning room before tip off. We estimate 100+ attended this location. The Beer Hall was filling up an hour before tip and we estimate more than 70 watched the game with us.

Central Iowa Alumni have been asking for something to get behind, we will do our best to meet your expectations. Just a heads up on some of the planned events we are promoting at this time:
May 22 - UNI Central Iowa Alumni Club Habitat Build
June 29 - PSC Golf Outing @ Briarwood Club in Ankeny, 4 person best shot
August 13 - TC's Tailgate @ Jasper Winery
More information will be posted as it becomes available.

Nice cause. We have many citizens that need a leg up now and then.
